Josh Boone has been hired to direct The Fault In Our Stars, Fox 2000’s adaptation of John Green’s acclaimed best-seller.
Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, the producers behind The Twilight Saga and this past weekend’s Nicholas Sparks translation Safe Haven, are producing the project, which has a script by (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.
Whispers of Boone’s involvement surfaced over the weekend when a series of tweets connected Green, a big social networker, Boone and actress Shailene Woodley(The Descendants).
At this stage, however, sources say Woodley, who stars in Neustadter and Weber’s Now, has not been offered a role in the film (but she’s in the running for the female lead).
Huzzah and huzzah!
Hi, so we are a group of Nerdfighters at Appalachian State who love Looking for Alaska so much we are going to make a full length movie of it. We have a film major, music major, theater majors, and more on board. Now all we need is you! We would love all the support we can get so that we know our efforts will be worth it. We are working on getting a trailer for our movie up as soon as possible, and you can follow our Tumblr so you can know when it happens. :)
