In Dawson’s Creek, it was always Dawson who wanted to be the big-time filmmaker. But in real life, it looks like little Joey Potter will be the first one of the gang to helm her very own feature.

Katie Holmes is set to make her directorial debut on All We Had, an adaptation of the novel by Annie Weatherwax. Josh Boone, who’s coming off the YA smash The Fault in Our Stars, will write the script. Hit the jump for more details.

McConaughey the stand

Writer/director Josh Boone is down with the McConaissance, for obvious reasons, and he wants the actor to play a lead role in The Stand. Depending on which of Matthew McConaughey‘s roles are most prominent in your mind, however, the role choice might surprise you. And the choice is great, so read more below.

Update: Sadly, Boone said via Twitter that this is not true.

Vampire Lestat director

Universal only just put more energy into its efforts to adapt Anne Rice‘s vampire novels into films, as the studio renewed the option on 13 of Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles” books. The studio isn’t wasting any time getting moving on that option, as The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone is now in early talks to write and direct an adaptation of The Vampire Lestat, which was the centerpiece of Rice’s original trilogy of vampire novels.

The Vampire Lestat is a story very rooted in the ’80s, and we don’t know if this would be a period piece, or a modernized adaptation. If things come together, Boone would make this film after doing The Stand for Warner Bros.

When The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone was hired to direct The Stand for Warner Bros., we assumed that the intent on the studio side would be to make a film or pair of films with a broad appeal. In other words, we figured that WB wanted Boone to craft a film that could harness some of the teen appeal and social media buzz of The Fault in Our Stars. Turns out that might not be quite the case, as the director says he plans a single film (but a very long one) with an R rating. Read More »

Nat Wolff The Stand

This will probably help frame the direction Josh Boone plans to take his adaptation of Stephen King‘s massive post-apocalyptic novel The Stand. While Warner Bros. has cycled through few different filmmakers to adapt the novel, the studio finally landed on Boone, director of Stuck in Love and the upcoming adaptation The Fault in Our Stars. That latter film is going to be HUGE, and there’s little doubt that Warner Bros. hoped Boone could bring a four-quadrant teen appeal to The Stand.

And now he’s writing a role for Nat Wolff, the actor who features in The Fault in Our Stars. Read More »

The Fault in Our Stars extended trailer

If you’re not a big fan of Mondays (and who is?) then you probably think the last thing you need is an excuse to cry. And that’s exactly what the new The Fault in Our Stars extended trailer is. Somehow, though, getting bummed out over this movie feels more good than bad.

Divergent co-stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort play recovering teen cancer patients who meet in a support group, and then fall in love “the way you fall asleep — slowly and then all at once.” Sniff. Watch the trailer after the jump.

There’s been another shuffle on The Stand over at Warner Bros. While Scott Cooper was recently the latest writer/director linked to the adaptation, he fell away thanks to disagreements over done and approach. Now Josh Boone, whose film The Fault in Our Stars is set to open later this year, is in talks to direct.  Read More »

The Fault in Our Stars poster header

Last year, screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber brought us The Spectacular Now, a smart, tender YA adaptation about first love. This year, they’re mining similar territory with The Fault in Our Stars, based on John Green‘s bestselling novel. They even have Shailene Woodley starring once again.

This time, she plays Hazel Grace Lancaster, who falls for fellow cancer patient Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) after meeting him in a support group for sick teens. Josh Boone directs, with Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and Mike Birbiglia in supporting roles. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
