Earlier this week we shared with you our interview with Wyck Godfrey, who spoke about The Fault in Our Stars movie that he is producing.
There is now another interview out with Godfrey where he continues to get us excited about the book to film adaptation of the John Green novel.
“Dare I say, [The Fault in Our Stars script] is as good if not better than the book. It will be the best movie of next year if we can get our butts in gear,” he told Page To Premiere on the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 red carpet Monday night. Watch their video interview below:
These comments are in addition to what Godfrey had told us at the same red carpet. “It is the best book, it makes you rip your guts out, it makes you want to go out and live a better life,” he said excitedly. “I love it, I can’t wait to make it.”
“I’m producing it, Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, who wrote 500 Days of Summer, wrote the script – it’s brilliant. I’m getting ready to hire a director, we’ve got all the actresses you would ever want to be in it want to play Hazel Grace. So I’m excited about that.”
The Fault in Our Stars movie does not have a release date yet as the project is still in very early days of production. Despite Godfrey’s hopes for a release “next year,” we have a hard time seeing the film get released in 2013 because cast members haven’t even been selected yet. It may be a wait until 2014 at the earliest.
