Not only was the swell and emotional drama The Fault in Our Stars one of the biggest surprise successes of the year, but the film is also poised to be one of the most profitable. Following positive reviews and a hefty opening weekend, the pic just recently crossed the $100 million mark at the box office against a budget of just $12 million. Author John Green—whose who wrote the book—was a big presence during the film’s marketing campaign, and now another one of his books is poised to get the feature treatment following the success of Fault.
Paramount Pictures is currently in talks with filmmaker Sarah Polley to write and possibly direct an adaptation of Green’s debut novel, the coming-of-age story Looking for Alaska. Hit the jump for more.
