Paper Towns won’t have you sobbing the same way as Fault in Our Stars did: The 2008 book is a mystery about a teen who attempts to find his enthralling and mysterious classmate when she goes missing after enlisting him on a nighttime revenge-seeking adventure.
The movie does, however, boast a team of TFIOS veterans, including screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Nat Wolff, who played the supporting role of Isaac in this summer’s hit sob-fest, will take on the role of Quentin, the movie’s male lead. Now, to eagerly await the casting of Margo, the object of Quentin’s affection/obsession.
