Are you guys interested in a film version of John Green's "Turtles All the Way Down?". 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.
That may not sound incredibly promising, but Green has re-teamed with Fox and the same people he worked with on the film adaptations of TFIOS and Paper Towns, so things are looking pretty good for YA fans.
"We're gonna give it a try!"
"It doesn't mean there will definitely be a movie, but it means that there might be one", said Green with regards to news of the deal.
Along with the invitation to "begin inundating me with cast suggestions", Green closed the video with an earnest appeal to his fans.
Ultimately, Green believes the answer to that question is yes, with the author saying: "I'm really excited for the opportunity and also the challenge of the Turtles All The Way Down movie, and I hope you're excited, too". The New York Times called it "a wrenching and revelatory novel", while The Guardian dubbed the book "a new modern classic".
Green first met box-office success with the 2014 movie adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars", which racked up to $307 million worldwide. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.
Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill will produce Turtles All the Way Down, with Erin Siminoff and Molly Saffron overseeing for Fox.
Having hit box office gold with "The Fault in Our Stars", the studio has optioned the rights to Green's latest tween tale, "Turtles All the Way Down".
