Fox 2000 options ‘Fault in Our Stars’

Wyck Godfrey to produce adaptation of John Green novel

Fox 2000 is acquiring John Green tome “The Fault in Our Stars,” and “Twilight” producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen will produce a feature adaptation.

Godfrey’s Temple Hill shingle originally brought the project to the 20th Century Fox-based banner. Temple’s Isaac Klausner first brought “Fault” into the production company.

Green’s “Stars” centers around a terminally ill 16-year-old with thyroid cancer who joins a support group for cancer patients, where she meets a handsome teen, and the two help one other grapple with their respective illnesses.

Green won the 2006 Michael L. Printz award for adolescent novel “Looking for Alaska.”
