Cara Delevingne is a manic pixie dream girl in the Paper Towns trailer

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS was a breakout film for director Josh Boone and actor Nat Wolff. In fact, Wolff will headline the adaptation of PAPER TOWNS from author John Green who wrote THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. This time, though, the female lead will not be dying of cancer but still disappears under mysterious circumstances.

This first trailer for PAPER TOWNS starts out like your average teen romantic drama with a boy pining after his dream girl whom he soon discovers is slightly off her rocker in all the right ways. Cara Delevingne plays the role of Margo Roth Spiegelman like a manic pixie dream girl along the lines of Zooey Deschanel in (500) DAYS OF SUMMER, Kate Winslet in ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, and Natalie Portman in GARDEN STATE. However, PAPER TOWNS then throws a GONE GIRL twist.

PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbor Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears--leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship--and true love.

While I was quick to write this movie off after the first sixty seconds of the trailer, it grew on me a bit. I am intrigued by the mystery aspect of the film and while I could easily read the novel to find out what happens, Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne look good enough for me to give the film a shot. John Green is a big enough name in the young adult publishing world that this movie could easily be a moderate hit at the box office.

PAPER TOWNS opens on July 24th.
