'Paper Towns': John Green to Preview Footage at BookCon 2015
His panel is set for May 30 at New York City's Javits Center.
John Green is returning to BookCon — and he's not coming empty-handed.
The author will be on hand to preview footage from the upcoming film adaptation of his second novel, Paper Towns, which stars Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne.
The panel will help close out day one of BookCon and will take place at 6 p.m. on May 30 at New York City's Javits Center. More details are still to be announced.
Directed by Jake Schreier, the Fox 2000 film follows a teen named Quentin who has had a crush on his neighbor Margo since they were little kids. The two grew apart, but when Margo, the queen of cool at his high school, recruits him for some acts of rebellion and revenge, he finds himself getting close to her again — only to lose her when she suddenly disappears.
Paper Towns is the second movie adaptation of a book by Green, following 2014's massive hit The Fault in Our Stars. The film reunites Wolff and Green with Fault screenwriters Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter. Temple Hill producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, who also produced Fault, are producing Paper Towns.
Fault, which became a box-office hit due in part to the strong support of the book's fans, featured Wolff alongside Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. The film earned $304.9 million worldwide.
