John Green's 'Paper Towns' Film Adaptation Gets Release Date
Fox has set a release date for Paper Towns, its adaptation of the 2008 novel by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green. The film reunites Fault's Nat Wolff with screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Temple Hill's Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are producing. Paper Towns will hit theaters on July 31, 2015.
That release date had originally been slated for Tim Burton's next movie, Peregrine's Home for Peculiars, an adaptation of Ransom Rigg's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is just getting underway. Its release has been moved to March 4, 2016.
The studio also moved up Ridley's Scott's The Martian, starring Matt Damon, from that March 4, 2016, date to the earlier date of Nov. 25, 2015.
In addition, the studio shifted the release date of George Tillman Jr.'s The Longest Ride, an adaptation of the novel by Nicholas Sparks, by one week. The film, starring Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Alan Alda, Oona Chaplin and Jack Huston, will now be released April 10, 2015 (rather than April 3, 2015).
