So by now I assume all of you have heard that “Looking for Alaska” (the novel by John Green) is going to be made into a movie adaption. Yes, that means that both Paper Towns AND Looking for Alaska are being made into movies!
I am not really sure how I feel about this. It all seems very sudden. The clear thought running through all of our heads is… “don’t f*** it up”. For me, I don’t really think it’s the kind of book I want turned into a movie. I think it will be very difficult for the producers to create. Paper Towns, I think they might be able to just pull off. Truthfully, I don’t believe either of these films will be as good as the TFIOS movie, but I still think they will both be well-done.
Also, LFA (Looking for Alaska) has some more adult themes than the other John Green books. This may raise the rating of this film, and the limit the audience that goes to see it.
Looking for Alaska…I kinda just want it to stay a book. But hey, it could still be an amazing movie. After all, it was an amazing book.
