'The Fault in Our Stars' screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber will be revising the script originally written by Kay Cannon.

Luke Snellin will direct Let It Snow, based on the short story collection from John Green and fellow young-adult authors Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle.

The short stories follow three unexpected romances that take place over the course of one Christmas Eve.

Let It Snow will be the first feature film for the English director, whose short Mixtape was nominated for a BAFTA.

The Fault in Our Stars screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber will be revising the script originally written by Pitch Perfect scribe Kay Cannon. Neustadter and Weber also adapted the Green-penned Paper Towns, as well as the coming-of-age indie The Spectacular Now.

The Universal project will be produced by Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark under the Bluegrass Films banner. Kristin Lowe and Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for Universal, while Alexa Faigen will oversee for Bluegrass. 

Universal acquired the rights to the anthology series following the success of 2014's The Fault in Our Stars, which grossed $307 million worldwide.

Snellin is repped by CAA, Oasis and Curtis Brown in the U.K.
