John Green is re-teaming with Fox to develop his latest YA novel, Turtles All The Way Down.
The studio was behind his previous two book-to-film adaptations, The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns. Unlike development on Looking For Alaska, whose rights are still being held hostage by Paramount, Green has seemingly been happy with his partners at Fox.
In his video announcement posted to the VlogBrothers channel on Tuesday, Green says he was hesitant to turn Turtles All The Way Down into a movie because the book focuses on an internal dialogue. But for the last two months, he and his team have looked for “a way to tell this story visually without relying on the old tropes that are usually associated with portrayals of OCD.”
“We’re going to give it a try,” Green says, warning that “it doesn’t mean that there will definitely be a movie.”
He adds he’s excited by the challenge and will be asking for feedback during the development process. But he’s still not casting it.
Turtles All The Way Down was published in October and has been sitting at the top of the New York Times Bestseller list for the past seven weeks. Given Green and Fox’s productive and positive relationship with one another, it’s not too big a surprise that his latest novel is getting turned into a movie.
