John Green teases 'Turtles All the Way Down' may become a movie

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

Following the success of the book-to-movie adaptations of the famed YA author's novels The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns, Fox 2000 made a decision to work with the man again to bring the world of Turtles All the Way Down to life in film form.

In the announcement, Green said the story "isn't the sort of thing that usually lends itself to film" before revealing that he's been in discussions with his previous collaborators for the past two months to figure out whether the adaptation could actually happen.

The novel, which tells the story of OCD-diagnozed Aza Holmes and her adventure to set out on a fugitive billionaire, has taken the top spot of the New York Times' Bestsellers' List for the seventh week since its release in October.

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".

Broadcom Ltd (AVGO) Tops Profit, Revenue Expectations
Scott And Selber holds 2.33% of its portfolio in Broadcom Limited (NASDAQ: AVGO ) for 16,550 shares. Avago Technologies Limited had 155 analyst reports since August 4, 2015 according to SRatingsIntel.

"We're gonna give it a try!"

"I await your casting suggestions, because of course I will be casting the movie adaptation of Turtles All the Way Down entirely by myself", John joked on Twitter, pointing out that no one ever pays attention to his Twitter bio, which clearly states he does not cast the movies. "And if you care about the book, please know that I will try to listen to you throughout this process". She and her friend attempt to solve a mystery revolving around a missing billionaire to collect a large reward.

Fox previously adapted Green's novels Paper Towns, starring Nat Wolff as Quentin "Q" Jacobsen and Cara Delevingne as Margo Roth Spiegelman, and The Fault in Our Stars, which featured Ansel Elgort as Augustus "Gus" Waters and Shailene Woodley as Hazel Grace Lancaster. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis.

In a YouTube video posted Tuesday, Green said he sold the rights of the book to Fox 2000, the production company that brought to life his other novels, "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Paper Towns".
