John Green, the author of “The Fault in Our Stars,” has signed a first look producing deal with Fox 2000, the company announced Tuesday.
Under the terms of the deal, Green will collaborate with Temple Hill Entertainment principals Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen on several projects.
Fox 2000 Pictures and Green first collaborated on “The Fault in Our Stars,” based upon Green’s acclaimed novel, which was produced by Temple Hill. The film became one of 2014’s biggest success stories, with a worldwide box office gross of more than $304 million.
“Paper Towns,” based on Green’s bestseller, is due in theaters July 24. Green is a producer on the comedy-drama, along with Bowen and Godfrey.
Green also wrote the novels “Looking for Alaska” and “An Abundance of Katherines.” He has been awarded the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award, among several other accolades. He has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize.
Green was selected by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. With his brother, Hank Green, he is one half of the Vlogbrothers, one of the most popular online video projects in the world.
Temple Hill Entertainment was founded in 2006 by Godfrey and Bowen. Their films include the “Twilight” and “Maze Runner” franchises.
Green is repped by Writers House and UTA.
