Another novel from Fault in Our Stars author to hit big screens
US author John Green - the guy behind teen hit The Fault in Our Stars - is about to have yet another novel of his hit the big screens.
Deadline reported that Universal optioned the film rights to the 2008 young-adult short-story collection Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances which comprises The Jubilee Express by Maureen Johnson, A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle by John Green, and The Patron Saint of Pigs by Lauren Myracle.
The separate interconnected stories follow teens during a huge Christmastime blizzard, The Hollywood Reporter wrote.
Green tweeted his excitement:
Even the series' co-author Johnson was excited about the news:
Fox premiered the adaptation of his well-received novel The Fault In Our Stars in June this year.
The 2014 film was produced on a US$16 million (S$20.2 million) budget and is approaching US$300 million at the global box office.
Paper Towns, Fox’s second Green-based feature adaptation, will be released in June next year. The LA times revealed that high-fashion model Cara Delevingne, 22, is set to play the female lead character Margo Spiegelman in Green's upcoming adaptation of the young-adult romance novel.
