John Green’s “Looking For Alaska” Will Be Made Into A Movie

The Fault In Our Stars was not only a success by critic and financial standards, it was accepted by the book’s fangirls- arguably the most difficult to please. The legions of fans who worship John Green and adore his best-selling YA romance would be quick to start argue the slightest detail that was unfaithful. With their approval, the movie had a strong a loyal fan base that supported the movie to earn over 167 million in it’s first two weeks. Unsurprisingly, this three digit number gave producers enough reason to invest in John Green and his books. While it’s been known for months that “Paper Towns” will be hitting theaters starring Nat Wolf (who played Isaac in “TFIOS”), it was just announced that “Looking For Alaska” will also be on the big screen soon.The award winning book was Green’s first one to write, although he’d co-written several books before that. While there’s no casting out yet, they have landed Sarah Polley (“Away From Her”, “Stories Will Tell”) to helm with John Green claiming he will be involved. His attachment to the project is crucial, as his support (and two million YouTube fans) helped make “TFIOS” a box office hit. The award winning book was Green’s first one to write, although he’d co-written several books before that. This confidence in Green is deserved, but past YA contemperary novels (like “The Perks of Being A Wallflower”) were failures by industry standards. “TFIOS” was a very rare movie and saturating the market with two of his stories may be more of a risk than investor’s may think. “TFIOS” is by far his most popular work to date and everyone’s expectations will be high for the box office and critical performance of the film.
