Fox 2000 is adapting John Green's YA book

Paper Towns, the film adaptation of Fault in Our Stars author John Green's book, has found its female lead in model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne.

Fault's Nat Wolff is playing the male lead in the film, which will be directed by Jake Schreier (Robot & Frank).

Towns follows a teen named Quentin (Wolff) who has had a crush on his neighbor Margo (Delevingne) since they were kids, but they grew apart as they got older. When Margo 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 reunites several players from Fault, including screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and Temple Hill's Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, who are back to produce.

The Fox 2000 project is slated for release July 31, 2015.

Delevingne is a model who has worked with Topshop, DKNY, Oscar de la Renta, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and more. She's recently branched out into acting beginning with a small part in 2012's Anna Karenina. She starred with Kate Beckinsale and Daniel Bruhl in the thriller The Face of an Angel, and will appear in Justin Chadwick's Tulip Fever. She also has a small role in Warner Bros.' upcoming project Pan. She's repped by WME, United Agents and Storm Model Management.
