Though The Fault in Our Stars is still over two months away from release, Fox 2000 is already planning the next John Green book they’ll bring to the big screen: Paper Towns.
The studio is moving ahead with a Paper Towns movie and will bring back the same team that wrote and produced Fault for Fox. That means screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber are writing the script, and Wyck Godfrey is returning to produce. Green will executive produce – a title he did not have on Fault, though he was very present on set.
In addition, Deadline reports that the film will be designed around Nat Wolff (pictured above) starring as Quentin. The actor has the role of Isaac in Fault and was last seen in Stuck in Love, directed by Fault helmer Josh Boone.
Paper Towns was released in October 2008 and debuted at #5 on the New York Times Bestseller list. It was Green’s third book after Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines.
Notably, Wolff auditioned for the role of Gus in Fault before it went to Ansel Elgort. Paper Towns will give him a chance at a starring role for a potentially very large film.
