John Green Announces Turtles All The Way Down Is Becoming A Movie

Fox Making Film of John Green's 'Turtles All the Way Down'

The bestselling author's latest novel, Turtles All the Way Down is getting the movie treatment, just like his other beloved books The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns. The Fault in Our Stars was the tear-jerker that got the ball rolling with Green adaptations. 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. Paper Towns, which was released in July 2015, did not perform as well in theaters, but still pulled in an impressive $85 million on a reportedly $12 million production budget.

He also joked to viewers that they could now flood him with casting suggestions for the movie. The book does belong to you, but I had to make this decision on behalf of it. The New York Times called it "a wrenching and revelatory novel", while The Guardian dubbed the book "a new modern classic". "It doesn't mean there will definitely be a movie, but it means that there might be one", Green said in the video. "If you care about the book, please know that I will try to listen to you throughout this process", he said. 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. When a local billionaire disappears, Aza and her friend Daisy set out to find the missing man.

Temple Hill's Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen will produce, with Erin Siminoff and Molly Saffron overseeing for Fox 2000.

The author took to his vlogbrothers YouTube channel to talk about his past, very positive experiences with having TFIOS and PT adapted into movies with Fox and confirmed they're all working together again to create a movie version of Turtles.
