A $300 million box office return on last year’s The Fault In Our Stars sent another John Green adaptation rushing to our screens to capitalize on the success of the teen drama. This summer, audiences will be treated to another of the author’s teenage tales in the shape of Paper Towns.
Adapted once more by Fault scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (the two wordsmiths also behind The Spectacular Now), it traces the story of Quentin (Fault star Nat Wolff) and Margo (Cara Delevingne). He falls madly in love with her after an adventurous romp around their city during their last year of high school, but the next morning, Margo disappears, leaving a trail of clues for Quentin to decipher in order to find her.
Robot & Frank director Jake Schreier steers this latest Green story away from the author’s ‘teen weepie’ tag and more toward teen mystery. Audiences might be hoping for Fault In Our Stars: Part Two, but on the basis of this first trailer, Paper Towns is in a world of its own. And that’s definitely a good thing.
Co-starring Justice Smith, Austin Abrams, Halston Sage, Jaz Sinclair, Cara Buono Paper Towns opens on July 24.
Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green (“The Fault in Our Stars”), PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin, a high school senior who has been in love with his enigmatic neighbor Margo since childhood. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears–leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Q must find a deeper understanding of true friendship–and true love.
