Turtles All The Way Down will mark Green's third project with Fox.

In the announcement, Green said the story "isn't the sort of thing that usually lends itself to film" before revealing that he's been in discussions with his previous collaborators for the past two months to figure out whether the adaptation could actually happen. "That doesn't mean that there is definitely going to be a movie, but it means that there might be one", Green said.

Green first met box-office success with the 2014 movie adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars", which racked up to $307 million worldwide.

He continued, "I'm really excited for the opportunity and also the challenge of the Turtles All the Way Down movie, and I hope you're excited, too". The New York Times called it "a wrenching and revelatory novel", while The Guardian dubbed the book "a new modern classic".

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.

The author took to his vlogbrothers YouTube channel to talk about his past, very positive experiences with having TFIOS and PT adapted into movies with Fox and confirmed they're all working together again to create a movie version of Turtles. She and her friend attempt to solve a mystery revolving around a missing billionaire to collect a large reward. "Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts".

Temple Hill's Isaac Klausner and Marty Bowen will produce, with Erin Siminoff and Molly Saffron overseeing for Fox 2000. Who would you like to see play Aza and Daisy in the film?
