Luke Snellin was recently tapped to direct. “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.
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.
