Author John Green Jokes That He's Casting 'Turtles All The Way Down' Movie Adaption

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

The author, and Variety, are reporting that Fox has picked up the movie rights to the brand new book, which hit newsstands just a few months ago.

The book centers on 16-year-old Aza Holmes, a young woman looking for clues in the disappearance of a fugitive billionaire, while grappling with mental illness.

“I await your casting suggestions, because of course I will be casting the movie adaptation of Turtles All the Way Down entirely by myself,” John joked on Twitter, pointing out that no one ever pays attention to his Twitter bio, which clearly states he does not cast the movies.

Chris Colfer Turned A Memoir Book Offer Into 'The Land of Stories' Instead

Just last week, we were given the wonderful news that Chris Colfer‘s “The Land of Stories” series truly isn’t over at all, and he’ll be writing two new books for it!

Earlier this year, the author and actor spoke with CBC’s Q podcast about how he landed his book deal in the first place.

Chris revealed that he was actually offered to write a memoir.

“I feel like when you write autobiographies, it finalizes things in a way,” Chris says. “And there’s so much more that I wanted to do with my career, with my life.”

At the time of the offer, he was only 19.

Chris adds, “It just didn’t feel right…I mean, how would you feel to pen your memoir at only 19? ‘And then I was able to drink. The End.’ Ya know? It just wouldn’t have been an interesting read to me.”
