Looking For Alaska Gets Some Familiar Screenwriters
The screenwriting and producing team behind the book to film adaptations of John Green’s Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns are going for a John Green third adaptation.
Screenwriting duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen will be writing and producing Looking For Alaska for Paramount.
Green confirmed the news on Twitter, describing it as “VERY VERY GOOD NEWS.”
Looking For Alaska currently has no release date, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it opened in theaters sometime in 2016.
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” (François 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.
