Before "The Fault in Our Stars" can even begin to steamroll the summer box office, another John Green novel has received the Hollywood green light. Fox 2000, which is distributing "Stars," has made a deal to bring Green's 2008 book "Paper Towns" to the big screen, Deadline.com reports.

"Paper Towns" is a young-adult novel that centers on Quentin and his neighbor slash love interest, Margo, with whom he once found a man who'd committed suicide. They've since grown apart, but now Margo recruits Quentin to help her get revenge on those who've hurt her. Margo then disappears, and Quentin uses clues to track her down.

"Stars" actor Nat Wolff, who's also been in "New Year's Eve" and "Admission," will take the lead as Quentin. There's no word yet on Margo's casting, but "Paper Towns" has recruited "Fault in Our Stars" and "The Spectacular Now" writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber for the script.

Green confirmed the news on Twitter.
