EXCLUSIVE: After completing its adaptation of the John Green novel The Fault In Our Stars, Fox 2000 has made a deal for the 2008 Green novel Paper Towns…
The experience of making The Fault in Our Stars was really wonderful because of the people involved: They all brought their talent and professionalism to the story and I’m so proud of the movie they made.
It was all so fun and magical (and frankly so different from my previous Hollywood experiences) that to be honest I wasn’t particularly keen to make another movie—unless I could work again with people I really trust.
And now it has happened! I’m really excited that the same team is reuniting to adapt Paper Towns. It will again be written by Weber and Neustadter, and again produced by Wyck Godfrey and Isaac Klausner. We’re working with the same people at the same studio (Erin Siminoff and Elizabeth Gabler at Fox 2000), and the project is being built around Nat Wolff, who plays Isaac in The Fault in Our Stars.
Like any movie project, this will be a longish road with many potential roadblocks, but I know it will be lots of fun and really rewarding to work again with such passionate and talented people.
p.s. I’m an executive producer this time around, which is exciting!

While most Americans know that the ACA law includes fines for those who do not buy coverage, Kaiser found that just 39% of the uninsured were aware of the Monday deadline. About four-in-ten (43%) said they didn’t know the deadline (or refused to answer), 13% believed it was sometime after March and 5% were under the impression it had already passed.
If you’re uninsured in the U.S., Monday is the deadline. Go ahead and do it now while the web site isn’t overwhelmed. I did this (and have guided friends through it), and it’s usually really easy. (In my experience, it can be quite hard if there’s a problem with ID verification, but that’s rare.)
We signed up for insurance in half an hour, paid a week later when the bill showed up, and were insured. I know that’s not everyone’s story, but I do think it’s most people’s stories. I was really intimidated by the web site and the whole process, but it does work, and the subsidies make insurance affordable for most people who aren’t medicaid-eligible.
I mean, I love the idea of the ACA. But I TRIED to sign up, every day for months. The website only started working for me in the month before it was due, and then when I finally got everything filled out, I found out that I STILL can’t afford ANY of the insurance options they provided me. I live off of a part-time, minimum wage job while going to college full time. If I had taken the lowest-priced offer, I would be spending 60% of my monthly income just on that.
So…still uninsured. :/
Demand. Our. Stars. Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff, and John Green are going on a #TFIOS tour this April for The Fault in Our Stars, and they could visit YOUR home state! Find out how to vote for your state here: http://thefaultinourstarsmovie.com/demandourstars
So Fox is doing this pretty cool thing: Shailene (who plays Hazel), Ansel (who plays Gus), Nat (who plays Isaac), and I (who is not in the move) are going on tour to support the movie.
(I’m pretty sure the tour is in May, not April, but maybe the official TFIOS tumblr knows more than I do.)
And instead of picking the states we travel to, they’re letting you pick by liking and reblogging the state(s) you want us to visit.
