Fox 2000 takes on The Fault in Our Stars

From Variety – I’m actually surprised it took this long for someone to snap up The Fault in Our Stars, John Green’s critically acclaimed and all around beloved YA novel, for a feature adaptation, but Fox 2000 has done it at last. Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (of Twilight fame, and Eragon infamy) brought the project to Fox, and will produce via their Temple Hill banner.

I can’t believe I haven’t read this book yet…

Book Jacket:

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs… for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
