EXCLUSIVE: Fox 2000 and Twilight Saga producers Temple Hill Productions have set Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber to adapt The Fault In Our Stars, the John Green novel. This comes after the duo handed in Royal Wedding, the seven-figure pitch they sold to Sony Pictures with Matt Tolmach producing.
The book focuses on two teens who strike up a relationship, even though they both have situations no teenager should have to contemplate, Hazel, 16, has terminal cancer, when she meets Augustus at her kids-with-cancer support group. Despite facing their own mortality, they bolster each other’s spirits with humor as they bravely face an uncertain future. The novel was published to high acclaim by Dutton Juvenile in January. Temple Hill’s Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen will produce.
It’s the second adaptation the writers have done for Fox 2000, after Rosaline. The scribes are repped by CAA and Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment.
