If done right, Fox's third Green adaptation could potentially address OCD onscreen in valuable ways.
Published in October 2017, Turtles All the Way Down tells the story of Aza Holmes, a 16-year-old girl who struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder and is on the hunt for a billionaire named Russell Pickett. They also turned Green's novel "Paper Towns" into a film which made $85.5 million.
"We're gonna give it a try!" "So now's the time to begin inundating me with casting suggestions". "It doesn't mean there will definitely be a movie, but it means that there might be one", Green said in the video. The New York Times called it "a wrenching and revelatory novel", while The Guardian dubbed the book "a new modern classic".
"I thought that was a good run because Paper Towns didn't make as much money and also I made a decision to write this extremely quiet novel that takes place nearly entirely inside one person's head, which isn't the sort of thing that usually lends itself to film", John explained about the book to movie making process. Green's previous work The Fault In Our Stars, which starred Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, was a huge hit for the studio making well over $300 million at the box-office. The film will be overseen by Temple Hill, which oversaw The Fault in Our Stars, with Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen. She and her friend attempt to solve a mystery revolving around a missing billionaire to collect a large reward. "Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts". As Green hinted, there haven't yet been any official discussions about who will star in the film.
