Looking for Alaska

Film adaptation

The film rights to the novel were acquired by Paramount Pictures in 2005. The screenplay was potentially going to be written and directed by Josh Schwartz (creator of The O.C.),[17] but due to a lack of interest by Paramount, the production had been shelved indefinitely.[18] It has been reported that Paramount is putting the screenplay in review due to the success of the film adaptation of Green's breakout novel, The Fault in Our Stars. On February 27, 2015, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, screenwriters for the The Fault in Our Stars adaptation, would once again be writing the screenplay for the film.[19] Paramount is actively casting the latest version of the screenplay, which was written by Sarah Polley.[20][21] Rebecca Thomas is set to direct.[22]
