(Relaxnews) – The author of “The Fault in Our Stars” has seen a second novel go to Fox Pictures, with the former’s supporting actor Nat Wolff in line for the leading role in “Paper Towns.”

Even if “The Fault in Our Stars,” which also stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, isn’t due in theaters until June this year, Fox is evidently feeling good about its prospects, acquiring an earlier novel by the same author.

John Green has a well established online presence as the host of YouTube channels VlogBrothers, Mental Floss and Crash Course.

He’s to reunite with the two producers and pair of screenwriters behind “The Fault in Our Stars” movie for “Paper Towns,” reports Deadline.

Two characters drive “Paper Towns.” Quentin, to be played by Wolff, was childhood friends with Margo. When they are both teens, Margo recruits Quentin for a night of justice and revenge, righting personal wrongs under cover of darkness — and breaking into a bank and a theme park for the fun of it.

But Margo vanishes again, this time for good, and Quentin is left to put together the clues she left in order to track her down.
