Temple Hill is also on board for the latest Green adaptation.

Author John Green is giving Hollywood another shot.

Fox 2000 and Temple Hill, which were behind the big-screen adaptations of Green's The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns, are pairing for an adaptation of his latest book, Turtles All the Way Down.

Turtles follows a 16-year-old girl with obsessive compulsive disorder that attempts to solve the mystery of a missing fugitive billionaire, Russell Pickett, with her best friend, Daisy, in order to collect the $100,000 reward. 

Temple Hill's Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen will produce, with Erin Siminoff and Molly Saffron overseeing for Fox 2000. Green is on board to executive produce with Rosianna Halse Rojas.

The author made the announcement Tuesday on his personal YouTube page, saying the choice was made after two months of discussions and adding, "So now’s the time to begin inundating me with casting suggestions." 

The Fault in Our Stars, toplined by Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley, bowed in June 2014 and took in an astounding $307 million at the global box office. Paper Towns, which was released in July 2015, did not perform as well in theaters, but still pulled in an impressive $85 million on a reportedly $12 million production budget.
