John Green’s ‘Let It Snow’ Lands Director (EXCLUSIVE)

Up-and-coming filmmaker Luke Snellin will direct the movie adaptation of John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle’s short story collection “Let It Snow.”

Universal landed the rights to the anthology series in 2014 following the success of Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” which was a huge hit for Fox 2000. Fox released “Paper Towns” last summer to moderate returns, and Paramount is currently developing “Looking for Alaska” — both of which are Green properties.

Weaving together three unexpected romances that take place over the course of one Christmas Eve, “Let It Snow” is written by Green, Johnson (“13 Little Blue Envelopes”) and Myracle (“Internet Girls”).

“The Fault in Our Stars” screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber revised the screenplay, originally written by Kay Cannon.

Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark will produce for Universal-based Bluegrass Films. Universal senior VP of production Kristin Lowe and director of development Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for the studio. Alexa Faigen will oversee for Bluegrass Films.

The film would mark the feature film debut of Snellin, who directed episodes of the British TV shows “Fried” “Mad Fat Diary”, “The Job Lot” and “Banana,” and a handful of shorts in the past. His credits include the short “Mixtape,” which was nominated for a BAFTA.

He is repped by CAA, Curtis Brown Group and Oasis Media Group.

Neustadter and Weber are best known for “500 Days of Summer” and “The Spectacular Now,” and previously adapted Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Paper Towns.” They are represented by CAA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and attorney Sean Marks.

Cannon is the writer of the breakout “Pitch Perfect” films, which have grossed more than $400 million worldwide. She is repped by WME.
