Well I guess it was inevitable. With the success of The Fault in our Stars the author of the book, John Green, is seeing his first book being turned into a big screen project. Looking for Alaska is a coming of age drama as a young man in search of adventure comes into contact with an exciting, dangerous, young lady called Alaska Young. There’s every possibility a relationship may be involved.
Paramount Pictures is in talks with actress/director/writer Sarah Polley to write and possibly direct this movie. The book was optioned years ago but it was only with the success of Stars has Paramount decided to go ahead.
Oh and a third Green book is in development by Fox 2000. For the record there are three other books so watch this space if these two movies turn a profit.
