Fox 2000 president Elizabeth Gabler said in statement Tuesday: “We are elated to expand upon our already extraordinary relationship with John and feel honored to be able to enhance our creative horizons together. He is truly a force of nature and we are proud to be part of his world.”
Under the deal, Green will collaborate with Temple Hill Entertainment principals Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen on several projects. Temple Hill, which produced the “Twilight” movies and “The Fault in Our Stars” film, already has a first-look deal at Fox.
“The Fault in Our Stars” was a breakout hit last year with over $300 million in worldwide grosses on a budget of under $15 million. The film adaptation of “Paper Towns” — produced by Bowen, Godfrey and Green — opens Friday amid expectations for a similarly solid performance.
The deal is the fifth set up at Fox 2000, joining first-looks for Nina Jacobson’s Color Force, Gail Berman’s The Jackal Group, George Tillman-Robert Teitel’s State Street Pictures and Karen Rosenfelt’s Sunswept Entertainment. Fox has another 20-plus first-look deals, including pacts with Paul Feig, James Cameron, Peter Chernin, Ridley Scott and Ben Stiller.
Green is repped by Writers House and UTA.
Green also wrote the novels “Looking for Alaska,” which has an adaptation set at Paramount, and “An Abundance of Katherines.”
