It looks like we will be getting the film adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns a lot sooner than we thought. According to Hypable, the Paper Towns film will hit theaters July 31, 2015. Next summer officially can’t come soon enough. The film will be released on the heels of the incredible success of the more recent film adaptation of Green’s novel The Fault in Our Stars.
The Paper Towns film will see the return of the dynamic team that produced and wrote the The Fault in Our Stars. Producer Wyck Godfrey and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber will reprise their roles for the upcoming film. Additionally, Nat Wolff who played Isaac in TFIOS, will be working with the team once again as the film’s protagonist, Quentin. In further exciting news, this film will mark John Green’s producing debut.
Green previously told The Hollywood Reporter that he “can’t wait for everybody to see Scott and Mike’s script, and to see Nat as Q, Nat is such an extraordinary actor and I can’t wait to hang out with him again. Maybe we’ll get the whole band back together!”
John Green fans have officially been spoiled, and we have no complaints. In addition to the recent sob fest that was TFIOS, and the excitement of the nearness of Paper Towns, Green’s first novel Looking for Alaska is also headed towards the big screen. It was recently announced that Sarah Polley is slated to write and direct the film.
