The film is based on the young adult novel of the same name by author John Green. It’s being produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
“I think we’ll be making ‘Fault in Our Stars’ by the end of the summer. It’s exciting,” Wyck said.
“It’s also a book that if you’re an adult, to call it YA really minimizes the appeal of the book because you love that time in your life,” Marty added. “We all kind of still identify with high school, whether we wish we were back there or wish we had done it differently, and to sort of relive that experience through the perspective of these two individuals and their love. My mother loves the book, you know. It’s just one of those kinds of books.”
John Green is very involved in the process which is always great for book to film adaptions (re: The Perks of Being a Wallflower). You can read the rest of the article on the Hollywood Crush website.
