Another John Green Movie?!

After the massive, but predictable success of the movie The Fault in Our Stars, John Green's first novel Looking for Alaska will be adapted on screen! 
Actress and film maker Sarah Polley has been assigned by Paramount to adapt Looking for Alaska into a movie. John Green is dominating both the book charts and film charts and will continue to.
AAAANNDDD... Paper Towns is also going to be adapted by the same producers who worked on The Fault in Our Stars. Exciting, exciting, exciting!

You can scream now.


Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (Fran├žois Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.

After. Nothing is ever the same.

For those of you who didn't read The Fault in Our Stars before watching the movie, I suggest that you go to your closest bookstore, buy and start reading Looking for Alaska ASAP, pronto.
