John Green's 'Turtles All the Way Down' To Get Film Adaptation

John Green's 'Turtles All the Way Down' To Get Film Adaptation”

He pointed out that he does not cast in movies because "no one ever reads my Twitter bio". The production house previously adapted the massively successful The Fault in Our Stars in 2014 and Paper Towns in 2015.

Green addressed the news in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel vlogbrothers, which he runs with his brother, entrepreneur and educator Hank Green.

"We're gonna give it a try", Green said.

He also joked to viewers that they could now flood him with casting suggestions for the movie.

He continued, "I'm really excited for the opportunity and also the challenge of the Turtles All the Way Down movie, and I hope you're excited, too". John admitted in the video that he wasn't sure he would get a chance to make this book come to life because of the subject matter and while it's not 100% set in stone the movie will actually end up happening, he and the studios are in the process of attempting to bring this story to life. The New York Times called it "a wrenching and revelatory novel", while The Guardian dubbed the book "a new modern classic". The bestseller centers on a 16-year old high school girl with obsessive compulsive disorder who tries to the solve the mystery of a fugitive billionaire. Green's previous work The Fault In Our Stars, which starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, was a huge hit for the studio making well over $300 million at the box-office.

Here is the Amazon description for the novel: "Sixteen-year-old Aza never meant to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate". The film will be overseen by Temple Hill, which oversaw The Fault in Our Stars, with Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen. Who would you like to see play Aza and Daisy in the film?
