What kind of question would you like answered?

Q: Where should I send a screenplay to get it produced?

I’m sorry to say I have absolutely no idea how one goes about submitting screenplays.

Q: I would like to audition to be in the movie of your book?

Should Hollywood ever greenlight any of my other books, and should there be an open casting call, I will definitely let you know on the blog and in a video and on twitter and so on. But it should be noted that I have exactly as much say in casting as you do.

Q: Will Grayson, Will Grayson?

WGWG has not been optioned. (To quote a real live movie producer who really said this about Will Grayson, Will Grayson, “The only thing Hollywood hates more than smart teenagers is smart, gay teenagers.” I hope Hollywood will prove this movie producer wrong someday.)

Q: Paper Towns movie?

The rights to Paper Towns were optioned by Mandate Pictures (which made Juno), and I was hired to write the screenplay. I worked hard on the script for much of 2009, but in the end Mandate didn’t feel they had the kind of screenplay they could shoot. Fox 2000 and Temple Hill later bought the rights to Paper Towns and hired Scott Neusdadter and Michael Weber to write the script, as they had for The Fault in Our Stars. The movie was directed by Jake Schreier and released in the summer of 2015.

Q: Katherines movie?

An Abundance of Katherines was optioned by a small production company that in the end couldn’t get a movie together.

Q: Looking for Alaska movie? I can haz? Nao plz?

The rights to the Looking for Alaska movie are owned by Paramount. Paramount will probably still own the rights to LFA when my initial readers grow up and become famous film executives; hopefully then someone will make it.
