Good news, John Green fans! It was just reported by THR that the movie adaptation of John Green’s ‘Looking for Alaska‘ has found its writers and producers, and it’s the same team behind the ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ movie and the ‘Paper Towns’ movie.
Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have signed on to Paramount’s adaptation of ‘Looking for Alaska,’ and Temple Hill Entertainment’s producers, Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, have also signed on to the project.
The gang is back together, creating more films that get us right in the feels.
Neustadter and Weber will write the ‘Looking for Alaska‘ screenplay, which is based around a boy named Miles Halter who leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the “Great Perhaps.” While there, Miles meets a clever, gorgeous and mysterious girl named Alaska Young and begins to fall for her. He later realizes she’s a mystery he may never be able to solve.
‘Looking for Alaska‘ was John Green’s debut novel, released in 2005, so we’re so happy to see that it’s finally being adapted. We absolutely loved the novel.
No casting has been announced for the film yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
