John Green Says No 'Looking For Alaska' Movie Will Be Made

John Green Says No 'Looking For Alaska' Movie Will Be Made

We may not be getting that Looking For Alaska movie after all…

John Green took to Twitter this morning, addressing the movie based on his best selling book of the same name.

“As this has so many RTs, I guess I should say: No Looking for Alaska movie is forthcoming (to my knowledge anyway),” he wrote. “I have no control over the movie rights to Looking for Alaska. To my knowledge, Paramount (who own the rights) have no plans to make a film.”

This is really a bummer for JJJ, we loved the book and were looking forward to seeing it on the big screen.

TELL JJJ: How do you feel if no “Looking For Alaska” movie gets made?

WIN The New 'Descendants' Book & Roku 2 NOW!

WIN The New 'Descendants' Book & Roku 2 NOW!

The new Descendants novel is out in stores now and the JJJ Book Club is proud to say that we blasted through it!

It’s such a good read that we’ve teamed up with Disney Publishing and decided to give away a copy of “Return To The Isle of the Lost”, written by our fave Melissa de la Cruz, PLUS a Roku2, so you can stream the Descendants movie!

“Return To The Isle of the Lost” summary: Mal’s an expert at intimidating her enemies, but she’s broken the habit since leaving her villainous roots behind. So when she and her friends Evie, Carlos, and Jay all receive threatening messages demanding they return home, Mal can’t believe it. Sure, she’s King Ben’s girlfriend now, and she’s usually nice to her classmates, but she still didn’t think anyone would be silly enough to try to push her around.

The thing is, it kind of worked. Especially since she and her friends have a sneaking suspicion that their villainous parents are behind the messages. And when Evie looks into her Magic Mirror, what she sees only confirms their fears. Maleficent’s just a tiny lizard after her run-in with Mal at Ben’s Coronation, but she’s the worst villain in the land for a reason. Could she have found a way to escape? Whatever’s going on, Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay know they have to sneak back to the Isle and get to the bottom of it.

Without its infamous leader, the island’s even worse than when they left it, but the comforts of home—even a home as gloomy as the Isle of the Lost—can be hard to resist for recently reformed villains. Will the kids be able to beat the evil bubbling at the Isle’s wicked core, or will the plot to destroy Auradon succeed?

First Read Alert: "Autumn's Wish" by Bella Thorne!

First Read Alert:

JJJ has such a treat for our readers today — we got our hands on an exclusive excerpt from Bella Thorne‘s upcoming novel, “Autumn’s Wish”!

In the third book of her trilogy, senior year is here, and everyone has a plan—except Autumn Falls. So many crazy-important decisions lie ahead, and she’s scared to make the wrong one.

So when she receives a magical locket that enables her to travel through time (!!!), Autumn hopes she can correct all her past mistakes—with her friends, with boys—and maybe even prevent her dad from dying. But the locket doesn’t work that way.

Instead, Autumn discovers that she’s only able to visit the future—and she doesn’t like what she sees. Autumn can change her destiny . . . but what does she really want?

“Autumn’s Wish” hits shelves and wherever books are sold on July 5th, and the second book, “Autumn’s Kiss” is available on paperback June 7th.
