ATTENTION ALL NERDFIGHTERS. John Green's book to movie adaptations won't end with upcoming Paper Towns.
On Wednesday John announced that his 2005 debut, Looking for Alaska, officially has a director and will actually be A REAL THING.
Becca gets Alaska–she wrote me this letter that just made it clear to me that she gets it way deep down, and if you've seen her movie Electrick Children you'll know she has a really cool visual imagination. I am not by nature optimistic, but I think it could be a really great movie.
And I have to say that I'm really grateful to Paramount for being so open to my concerns and responding in a way that has made it possible for me to feel genuinely excited about the prospect of a LfA movie, even if I am of course still somewhat apprehensive just because the story is so personal to me and I know it also means a lot to many readers.
