Cara Delevingne set for Paper Towns

With one adaptation already successfully under his belt with The Fault In Our Stars, author John Green is now watching the progress of another tome, Paper Towns, as it heads to the big screen. The Fault In Our Stars' Nat Wolff has snagged the male lead, and now model turned actress Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina) is in talks for the primary female role.





Robot & Frank (2012) director Jake Schreier is set to direct the film, which sees young neighbours Quentin and Margo united by the experience of finding the body of a man who committed suicide. Though they grow apart as they age, they're suddenly thrown back together when Margo shows up one night at Quentin's window dressed as a ninja.

After launching a campaign to wreak revenge on the people who have hurt her in her life, she vanishes and our hero sets out to follow clues and discover what happened. The Fault In Our Stars writers Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter are once more on script duty and the film should be out next year, looking to keep the Green bandwagon ticking over at 20th Century Fox.

Delevingne, last seen in Anna Karenina (2012), has several films on the way including London Fields, Kids In Love and Tulip Fever. She's also in the cast for Joe Wright's (Atonement) Pan, the Peter Pan origin story that sees Garrett Hedlund (Inside Llewyn Davis) playing Hook and Hugh Jackman (Les Misérables) as Blackbeard.
