John Green reteaming with Fox for Turtles All the Way Down movie

John Green's best-selling book, "Turtles All The Way Down" is headed to the big screen!

"For the last two months, we've been talking about it: is there a way to tell this story visually without relying on the old tropes that are usually associated with portrayals of OCD?" asks Green, who lives with obsessive compulsive disorder himself, and who has opened up about his experiences via his channel.

Fox is back in the John Green business.

Here is the Amazon description for the novel: "Sixteen-year-old Aza never meant to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there's a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate". Rosianna Halse Rojas, a writer, social media manager, and personal assistant to Green, will also executive produce the Turtles All the Way Down film. A yet-to-be-announced project about AFC Wimbledon, the League One professional soccer team in England backed by Green, has also been optioned by Fox 2000. "That doesn't mean that there is definitely going to be a movie, but it means that there might be one", Green said. "If you care about the book, please know that I will try to listen to you throughout this process", he said.

"I nearly didn't sell the movie rights to my book, The Fault in Our Stars, partly because I'd had some bad experiences in Hollywood, but partly because that book was really close to me", he said in a YouTube video announcing the news. Green is the author of the novel "The Fault in Our Stars", which was turned into a 2014 feature film starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, that took in $307.2 in the worldwide box office.

If you haven't stopped crying over The Fault In Our Stars, it's time to brace yourself.
