Another of John Green’s books is heading to the big screen. 

According to the author, Green’s novel “Paper Towns,” which was originally released in 2008, is being adapted into a film, with some of the same faces behind the upcoming movie “The Fault in Our Stars,” also based on a Green book, along for the ride. 

“EXCITING NEWS!" Green wrote on Twitter. "The #TFIOSMovie team is getting the band back together for PAPER TOWNS!... I'm also REALLY excited that I'll be an executive producer on the Paper Towns Movie. Now, if you don't like something, you can blame me :)”

Actor Nat Wolff, who stars as Isaac, the friend of Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort) in “Fault,” will star as the main character in “Paper,” according to Green. “Paper” centers on a teenager named Quentin who is in love with a girl named Margo, who disappears. However, Quentin believes she's left a clue for him that may provide the answer to where she is.

According to Green, the screenwriters for "Fault," Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, as well as the producers (he named Wyck Godfrey – "Fault" producers also included Michele Imperato, Isaac Klausner, and Marty Bowen), will return for "Paper." 

Wolff tweeted about his happiness to be involved in the film.

"I am so excited to play the lead in @realjohngreen wonderful book paper towns!!!!" he wrote. "The same amazing fault team."

“Fault” will come to theaters on June 6.
