Cara Delevingne Lands Female Lead in John Green’s ‘Paper Towns’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Cara Delevingne is in talks to co-star with Nat Wolff in the adaptation of John Green’s “Paper Towns” for Fox 2000.

Jake Schreier will direct.

The story follows young neighbors who share the jarring experience of finding the body of a man who committed suicide. The two leads grow apart — until the night he finds her at his bedroom window, dressed like a ninja. She enlists him in a campaign to get revenge on the people who’ve hurt her. The next day, she vanishes and he is left to ponder the ramifications of the evening. Then he begins getting clues and follows them in an attempt to find her.

Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are producing. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (who also adapted Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars”) are writing the script.

After the success of “Stars,” which grossed $280 million worldwide, Fox is hopeful fans will have an appetite for another complex YA love story.

Fox 2000 seems to want to stay in business with the model-turned-actress, as she is also in talks to star in its Beach Boys inspired “All Summer Long.” She most recently wrapped production on the Warner Bros. film “Pan.”

She is repped by WME and United Agents.
