The Fault in Our Stars author John Green’s debut novel Looking for Alaska is set for a small screen adaptation, with Hulu picking up an eight-episode limited series from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire along with Paramount Television.

The Amazon blurb for Looking for Alaska, first published back in 2005, reads:

Before. Miles Halter’s whole life has been one big non-event until he starts at anything-but-boring Culver Creek Boarding School and meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, screwed up and utterly fascinating she pulls Miles into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. But when tragedy strikes, and Miles comes face-to-face with death he discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally.

After: Nothing will ever be the same.

The O.C. creator Schwartz first acquired the rights to the book in 2005, having been impressed by the unpublished manuscript. It has

Hulu To Adapt John Green’s First Novel, ‘Looking For Alaska’, Into Limited Series

Following the successful feature adaptations of The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns, YouTube star John Green will see his first-ever novel, Looking For Alaska, turned into a limited series at Hulu.

The eight-episode run will be produced by Paramount Television and Fake Empire Productions -- whose co-founder Josh Schwartz wrote the pilot and has been shopping the project since the novel’s debut 13 years ago. Schwartz, who created teen staple The O.C., will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Alaska was initially set as a film at Paramount Pictures, Deadline reports, though after languishing in development for many years, Schwartz recently re-approached Green about the idea of a series -- to which he promptly agreed.

Other executive producers on Alaska include Green, Jessica Tuchinsky, Mark Waters, and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment.

“Looking for Alaska” is told through the perspective of teen Miles “Pudge” Halter, as he enrolls in a boarding school to try to gain a deeper understanding of life. He meets Alaska Young, a student who he falls in love with while she guides him through his personal “labyrinth of suffering” throughout the school year. When Alaska unexpectedly dies, Miles must work through his grief as he and his other close friends work to uncover the truth behind Alaska’s death.

The project has gone through many incarnations since Schwartz first received the then-unpublished manuscript for “The Fault in Our Stars” author’s debut novel in 2005, with former Paramount Pictures boss Gail Berman originally purchasing the rights for Schwartz to write and potentially direct a feature and Paramount TV president Amy Powell helping to move the project from the feature division to TV.

The limited series marks Schwartz and Savage’s second project at the streaming service, along with “Marvel’s Runaways,” which was renewed for a Season 2.

Why we want to see it: Okay, so “Infinity War” technically releases in late April, but that won’t stop the third installment in Marvel’s star-powered ensemble franchise from going down as the superhero event of the summer. Say goodbye to Loki and Ultron and hello to Thanos, the Avengers’ newest arch nemesis. Even if “Infinity War” turns out to be a heroic hodgepodge mess, it’s worth seeing for the Avengers debuts of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Black Panther alone. Disney, just take our money.

Jonathan movie review: Sci-fi role(s) for Ansel Elgort

Ansel Elgort is arguably the hottest young male Millennial actor, already known for his performances as the male lead in the melodrama The Fault in our Stars and his title role in the action-thriller Baby Driver, not to mention his supporting roles in the Divergent series. In the sci-fi drama Jonathan, he doubles down in the title role as a young man not with a split personality but quite literally two personalities. In his feature directorial debut Bill Oliver imagines a near future in which a rare condition leaves two distinct persons trapped inside one body. A digital brain implant, […]

Ansel Elgort Talks #MeToo, ‘The Goldfinch’ and His Creepy Thriller ‘Jonathan’

Ansel Elgort Talks #MeToo, ‘The Goldfinch’ and His Creepy Thriller ‘Jonathan’
Ansel Elgort broke hearts with “The Fault in Our Stars.” Now the teen idol is twisting minds with “Jonathan,” a low-budget sci-fi head fake of a film that also boasts a bold performance from Elgort as twin brothers, John and Jonathan. One, John, is a care-free ladies man, while the other, Jonathan, is a buttoned-up and slightly priggish architect. The film debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Elgort is riding high. He headlined “Baby Driver,” an off-beat heist film that was a breakout hit last year, and scored the lead role of Theo in the big screen adaptation of Donna Tartt’s acclaimed best-seller “The Goldfinch.” In his spare time, he also makes electronic dance music under the stage name Ansolo.

Elgort spoke with Variety about his foray into indie filmmaking, Hollywood’s sexual harassment crisis, and the challenges of embodying emotionally damaged characters such as Theo and Jonathan.

Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton says The New Mutants “going full-fledged horror”

Having originally been slated to open in theaters this weekend, we now still have some 16 months to wait before we get to see 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

Having been delayed twice, Fox has now taken the decision to “overhaul” the movie with up to 50% reshoots, reportedly inserting new characters, as well as ramping up the horror elements. And, according to Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton – who plays the character of Cannonball – Fox and director Josh Boone are looking to take the movie into “full-fledged horror” territory.

“It’s basically about these mutants in a facility for damaged mutants,” Heaton told EW. “It’s a story about these characters coming to grips with who they are and it’s a horror X-Men movie, which we haven’t seen before. I feel like, for an X-Men movie, yeah, I think they’re going full-fledged horror. Without saying

Spielberg Still Really Wants to Make Stephen King's The Talisman

Spielberg Still Really Wants to Make Stephen King's The Talisman
Steven Spielberg has never collaborated with Stephen King. They've come close, but it's never actually happened. However, Spielberg has held the rights to The Talisman for more than three decades and he's totally committed to getting it made for the big screen in the near future. Perhaps not as a director, since his plate is rather full right now, but Spielberg has the desire to see this happen. Fortunately for him, the timing is probably perfect.

Stephen King says, "Several times he came very close to making it, and there were a lot of discussions about that." It, unfortunately, never came to pass. In 2006, it was nearly adapted as a six-part series for TNT, but those plans were eventually scrapped. Now, as Steven Spielberg has been making the press rounds for his latest movie, Ready Player One, he sounds truly ready to finally make The Talisman into a movie. Here's

‘The Stand’: Josh Boone’s Long-Gestating Stephen King Remake Might Be Going Back to Miniseries Roots — Report

‘The Stand’: Josh Boone’s Long-Gestating Stephen King Remake Might Be Going Back to Miniseries Roots — Report
It’s the remake that just won’t die. Over the years, a large-scale reimagining of Stephen King’s epic “The Stand” has cycled through directors like David Yates, Ben Affleck, and Scott Cooper, before finally landing on “The Fault in Our Stars” director Josh Boone way, way back in 2014. In the four years since Boone, an admittedly huge King fan (and one who has also being rumored to adapt other King works, including “Revival” and “Lisey’s Story”), was attached to the project, it’s continued to evolve in some very different ways. That’s still happening.

The Tracking Board reports that Boone, who is currently working on his (rumored-to-be-beleagured) “New Mutants” movie is still attached to direct the project, which might now be “coming together as a ten-hour limited series at CBS All Access.” It’s just another big change in a sea of them, though it’s

Stephen King adaptation The Stand reportedly reworked as ten-hour miniseries

Back in January of 2011, Warner Bros. Pictures and CBS Films announced plans to produce a big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic epic The Stand, with the likes of David Yates (Harry Potter), Ben Affleck (Argo) and Scott Cooper (Hostiles) linked to the director’s chair before Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) officially signed on in 2014.

Boone subsequently revealed that the project had been envisioned both as a single three-hour film, and a four-part franchise, before producer Roy Lee announced in 2016 that plans had been put on hold while they try “to figure out how to best make the movie.”

Boone since moved on to direct the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants, which is about to undergo significant reshoots having been pushed back once again to August 2019. However, it seems he remains attached to The Stand, which The Tracking Board suggests is now “coming together as a

Jon Hamm was reportedly going to appear as Mister Sinister in The New Mutants prior to the reshoots

Earlier this week it was revealed that 20th Century Fox has once again pushed back the release of The New Mutants, with the X-Men spinoff reportedly set to be completely “overhauled” with up to fifty percent of the movie reshot ahead of its latest release date in August 2019.

We know that these reshoots will include the addition of several new characters, but it seems they’ll also be removing one too – Mister Sinister, as played by Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.

According to The Tracking Board, The New Mutants would have featured the Essex Corporation, which you may recall was teased in the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits scene, and would have featured a tag of its own with Jon Hamm making an appearance as Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. the supervillain Mister Sinister.

Instead, the site is reporting that the post-credits scene for The New Mutants will now feature Antonio Banderas

Fox could be ‘overhauling’ The New Mutants, reshooting nearly fifty percent of the film

20th Century Fox announced back in January that they would be delaying the release of The New Mutants. The reason? The studio wanted to do “significant reshoots”, and also add a few more characters into the fray. Fans were certainly bummed out, and even the cast chimed in over the past few months expressing both understanding, and disappointment. Now, we have word of even more delays. The film was originally pushed back to February 2019 (from April 2018), but is now delayed all the way to August of next year.

So, in the words of Jerry Seinfeld: What’s the deal? Should we be worried? According to comicbook.com, Fox could be planning on reshooting nearly Half Of The Movie. This seems to stem from the studio’s desire to make a ‘scarier’ film, which ultimately prompted the decision to ‘overhaul’ it. This has apparently led to “creative differences” between the studio and Josh Boone,

What The Hell Is Going On With The X-Men Franchise?

Deadpool 2 is right around the corner, but it’ll be the last X-Men-related movie for a while as both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants have now been pushed back to 2019. In both cases, reshoots are to blame: Dark Phoenix is undergoing relatively minor reshoots to tweak the movie after test screenings, but New Mutants‘ reshoots are more substantial. Reportedly up to 50% of the movie, which was directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), is being re-filmed in order to make it scarier and add more characters.

Reason Behind X-Men 7 and New Mutants Delay Explained

Fox has delayed the release dates for both X-Men: Dark Phoenix and New Mutants, but it sounds like they had pretty good reasons for doing so. Originally, both movies were set to debut in 2018, with New Mutants originally set to arrive in April and Dark Phoenix slated for November. However, The New Mutants has now been bumped back for a second time and X-Men 7 has been pushed out of the calendar year as well. So, why did Fox decided to make these moves?

Starting with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, its original release date was November 2, but it has been moved to February 14, 2019, a date once occupied by Channing Tatum's long-gestating Gambit movie. Simon Kinberg, longtime writer and producer of the X-Men franchise, makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix. According to a new report, the movie was tested recently and the studio decided to order some reshoots. This is common

Fox pushes back X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants

Fox had big plans for the X-Men franchise in 2018, with the studio originally planning to release a triple-header in The New Mutants, Deadpool 2 and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

However, back in January, the studio announced that it was pushing back the release of The New Mutants from April 2018 to February 2019 – with the film set to undergo “significant reshoots”, including the addition of a brand new character – and now we have word of more delays.

Firstly, The New Mutants has been delayed a further six months, and will now arrive on August 2nd, 2019, while Simon Kinberg’s directorial debut X-Men: Dark Phoenix has been pushed back from its original November 2nd release date and will now arrive on February 14th 2019.

The Valentine’s Day 2019 date was originally earmarked for the Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit movie, which will apparently arrive on June 7th 2019 (until it is pushed back again).
