We posted yesterday regarding the rumor that director Josh Boone might be helming the film adaptation of John Green’s best-selling novel The Fault in Our Stars. It’s now confirmed that Boone, who directed the upcoming film Stuck in Love (watch the trailer starring Lily Collins and Logan Lerman here), is going to be directing Fault after all. Here’s what Boone had to say about taking on the film:
“John’s book came along just when I needed it,” Boone tells THR in a statement. “It pierced my heart and helped me deal with my grief. I laughed and cried and was left with an overwhelming feeling of hope. That our lives matter, that the love and kindness we share with others reverberates long after we’re gone.
“I feel the weight and responsibility to get this right and give his readers and devoted fans as pure a translation as possible … We hope to create a little infinity within this film that fans can revisit over and over.”
