Another John Green story is headed to the big screen


John Green fans rejoice: more of The Fault in Our Stars author’s material is heading to the big screen. Universal has optioned the rights to Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances, a short story collection Green wrote with fellow YA writers Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. The book consists of three, interrelated stories, all taking place at Christmastime. Johnson wrote the first story, The Jubilee Express; Green wrote the second, A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle; and Myracle the third, The Patron Saint of Pigs. The stories feature new romances, cheerleaders, and trips to Waffle House. This could end up a sort of Love Actually for the teen set.

Green tweeted:

Johnson added her relief that the news is out.

Earlier this week the adaptation of Green’s Paper Towns found its female lead. A film based on his Looking for Alaska is also in the works. 

John Green: The 'Paper Towns' movie now has a director

The Fault in Our Stars author John Green announced Thursday on Twitter that the next movie based on a novel of his has a director. Jake Schreier, who made his feature-length debut with the Frank Langella-starring Robot and Frank, will helm Paper Towns. 


Would Ansel Elgort go Bollywood for 'Fault in Our Stars' remake?


This past June, The Fault in Our Stars brought John Green’s tale of the little infinities shared by cancer-stricken teens Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) to the big screen. Along the way, the film became one of the popcorn season’s biggest movies for non-superhero or Channing Tatum devotees.

As of Aug. 26, superfans can weep to their heart’s content in the privacy of their own homes with the release of the film’s Digital HD edition (followed by a Blu-ray/DVD release on Sept. 16). Talking with EW, Elgort predicts the extended cut of the film will be catnip for Green’s army of followers. “We did a lot of scenes that didn’t make it in the [theatrical] release, some scenes that are really beautiful,” he says. “I bet now I’ll be seeing screenshots from [the deleted] scenes all over Instagram.”

Elgort recalls that director Josh Boone was particularly happy to add back in a tender moment when Hazel reads William Carlos Williams’ “The Red Wheelbarrow” to Gus as an ambulance takes him to the hospital.

Below, you’ll find another never-before-seen moment between the young loves that takes place after Gus’s sudden trip to the emergency room.


'The Fault in Our Stars' to get Bollywood makeover

The weepy teen romance The Fault in Our Stars, which stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as cancer-stricken young lovers, will get a Bollywood makeover. Fox Star Studios is planning a Hindi-language remake of the summer hit, which has grossed more than $263 million worldwide. The film was not an enormous success in India, where it banked less than $1 million, but FSS CEO Vijay Singh (no, not that Vijay Singh) expressed confidence to the Times of India that a Bollywood version of John Green’s bestseller would connect.

The story resonates with the emotions of today’s youth and has found universal appeal,” he said. “We are excited to adapt the film for Bollywood and can’t wait to get started.”

No actors have been cast yet for the remake, nor has a director been chosen.

Nat Wolff on how 'Paper Towns' is sort of like 'The Godfather'

The first time Nat Wolff heard about John Green’s Paper Towns, he was on the set of another John Green adaptation, The Fault In Our Stars. It was then that producer Wyck Godfrey suggested that Wolff give Paper Towns a read. As Wolff puts it, Godfrey didn’t quite wink at him, but “there was something behind” the suggestion. So Wolff quickly read the book, loved it, and four months later, picked up his phone just in time to be offered the lead role of Quentin “Q” Jacobsen in a Paper Towns film adaptation. According to Wolff, he said yes before they could even finish making the offer.

“It’s just such a soulful character and a funny book. I’m excited,” Wolff says. And yet what might be most exciting is the fact that screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber knew about Wolff before they started writing the script, which allowed them, for the first time in their careers, to write for a specific actor. “First of all, that is like the most exciting compliment I’ve ever gotten because those guys are such good writers. The fact that I’m the first actor that they’re writing for is really just unbelievable,” Wolff says. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'The Fault in Our Stars' takes the top spot with $48.2 million; 'Edge of Tomorrow' settles for third

Cue the faux-surprise. Female-targeted films A Fault in Our Stars and Maleficent wiped the floor with the competition, forcing Tom Cruise’s more teenage boy-friendly Edge of Tomorrow into a third-spot opening. Women made up a staggering 82 percent of the opening-weekend audience for the adaptation of John Green’s YA novel about teenage cancer patients—comparatively, Twilights initial audience was only 75 percent female. The film made $48.2 million, vaulting it alongside Love Story in the firmament of emotionally and financially resonant weepies. That’s less than the $56 million Divergent made its first three days out, but that other Shailene Woodley-starring YA adaptation cost a whole lot more.

Of course, Fault’s success will probably level out in the coming weeks once the film’s steadfast fanbase decides that their eighth bawl-filled screening is enough. (It was a 52 percent drop from Friday to Saturday alone.) But even considering just this weekend, the adaptation is an unqualified success for Fox and stands as more not-quite-shocking evidence that when you target movies at a demographic that’s typically underserved—particularly in the summer months—you can reap pretty big dividends. Especially when that demographic represents half of the world’s population. READ FULL STORY

Box office update: 'The Fault in Our Stars' prompts flow of tears and cash

The teenaged protagonists of The Fault in Our Stars may be star-crossed, but their box-office performance is anything but. Millions of moviegoers whipped out their wallets and hankies, in that order, to catch Fox’s tear-jerking adaptation of John Green’s popular YA novel about a pair of amorous adolescents (Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort) battling cancer. The film added to its phenomenal $8.2 million Thursday-night take to bring its total to $26.1 million on Friday. That’s more than two-and-a-half times what Tom Cruise’s sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow managed.

It’s also more than Woodley’s other YA vehicle, Divergent, made on its first day of release. Green’s fanbase is an especially dedicated one, so it’s to be expected that the film’s success would be front-loaded; but with a projected opening weekend take of somewhere around $60 million, it’s still beyond impressive.

'The Fault in Our Stars': Are those tears of joy, critics?


Perhaps the people who run studios thought Divergent was the big YA novel to launch Shailene Woodley into the stratosphere, but her performance in the cancer weepie The Fault in Our Stars might be the role that makes her a giant star.

Based on John Green’s 2012 best-seller, director Josh Boone’s movie tells the story of a cynical 16-year-old cancer patient (Woodley), saddled with an oxygen tank and breathing tube, and the more-dynamic, free-spirited remission patient (Ansel Elgort) who falls in love with her. “A generation of teens like [Woodley’s character] have been weaned on YA novels, leading to more discerning palates,” EW’s Chris Nashawaty writes in his review. “They can sniff out condescension from a thousand yards. That’s why they’re lucky to have an actress as effortlessly charismatic and natural as 22-year-old Woodley (The Descendants) as their stand-in.”

If you’ve read the book, you know the ending, and if you loved the book, you’re already whimpering. (Beware, fragile souls, the trailer awaits below.) If you’re perhaps older or didn’t read the book, think Love Story and everything that entails — spoilers, schmoilers. As the characters themselves learn, it’s not the ending that counts.

Sam Trammell talks 'The Fault in Our Stars,' the danger of mountain lions on the 'True Blood' set

The month of June should treat Sam Trammell well: The actor is in a little movie now in theaters — he plays Hazel’s father in The Fault in Our Stars — and will be back on our TVs come June 22, when the seventh and final season of HBO’s True Blood premieres.

He stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM Channel 105) to chat about both. In the first clip below, he talks about playing a parent for the first time on-screen and the first movie that made him weep. In the second, he confirms we’re in for a darker, scarier season of True Blood; that he’s still naked a lot; and that night shoots require a bit of bravery. READ FULL STORY
