“Take a risk, stop playing it so safe — maybe that’s what she’s been trying to tell me the whole time.”
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 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 John Green, following 2014’s massive hit The Fault in Our Stars, and also 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 and earned $304.9 million worldwide.
A clip from the Paper Towns trailer first debuted on Today, on which Green compared the film to Fault and promised: “It’s a lot funnier!”
Paper Towns hits theaters July 24. Watch the trailer below.
