Cara Delevingne Lands Female Lead Role In John Green's "Paper Towns"
Cara Delevingne has been confirmed as the female lead in the film adaption of "Paper Towns," the bestselling novel by author John Green!

Cara Delevingne is serious about making the jump from modeling to acting. She’s already wrapped production on Warner Bros. Pan film and now she’s landed the role of Margo Roth Spiegelman in the film adaption of John Green‘s bestselling novel, Paper Towns.

The news of Delevingne’s casting was first reported by Variety and then confirmed by author John Green on his Twitter account:

The film “follows young neighbors who share the jarring experience of finding the body of a man who committed suicide. The two leads grow apart — until the night he finds her at his bedroom window, dressed like a ninja. She enlists him in a campaign to get revenge on the people who’ve hurt her. The next day, she vanishes and he is left to ponder the ramifications of the evening. Then he begins getting clues and follows them in an attempt to find her.”

The film will be directed by Jake Schreier and produced by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. The screenplay will be written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber.

The Fault in Our Stars, the first John Green novel to be adapted into a big screen film, grossed $280 million worldwide and it would see that Fox wants to capitalize on the current success of YA love stories.
