John Green’s book to film adaptation of his latest novel Turtles All The Way Down has found a director.
The movie will be helmed by Hannah Marks, an actress (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency ) who is in the midst of building a directing career. She co-directed last year’s After Everything starring Marisa Tomei, Gina Gershon, and Jeremy Allen White. (Thanks to THR for the tip)
Fox was behind Green’s previous two book-to-film adaptations, The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns. His first (and arguably best) novel, Looking For Alaska, is being turned into a limited series at Hulu.
In his video announcing the Turtles All The Way Down movie, Green said he was hesitant to turn the book into a movie because the story 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 said, warning that “it doesn’t mean that there will definitely be a movie.”
He added 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 2017. 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.
