Hannah Marks to Direct John Green's Turtles All the Way Down

25-year-old Hannah Marks (After Everything) has been hired by Fox 2000 to direct the adaptation of John Green‘s bestselling novel Turtles All the Way Down, according to Variety.

Hannah Marks is one of the youngest female studio directors in history. She will direct from a screenplay by Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker.

Published in October of 2017 by Dutton Books, Turtles All the Way is officially described as follows:

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

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 are producing, with Green and Rosianna Halse Rojas serving as executive producers on the project.
