From the young adult novel written by John Green, sprouts a movie called Paper Towns, which is set to debut in movie theaters on July 24. Having debuted at number five on the New York Times best-sellers list, this novel is said to be riveting, with schools around America using it as reading material for students.
Paper Towns brings together Cara Delevingne, who plays Margo Roth Spiegelman, and Nat Wolff as Quentin Jacobsen for an epic story of life, love, and adventure. The story follows 18-year-old year old Quentin Jacobsen, or Q as he is called by his friends, through his last moments as a high school student. The story centers around Q’s attraction to the beautiful and mysterious Margo Roth Spiegelman. While nine years ago they came across a dead body, now at their Central Florida high school Q has become a nerd and Margo the it girl, to team up with each other for a series of escapades.
The night right before graduating, Margo enters Q’s room requesting to borrow the minivan his parents gave him. Quentin is persuaded to join Margo in a night of mayhem and vengeance, only to vanish after. Although her family pays the disappearance not much attention, Q sets out to find Margo through a string of intricate clues involving an uncanny poem about death. Q is joined by his friends Radar, Ben and Lacey to help with the search for Margo. However, with a post from a website, it is discovered that Margo will turn up at a certain location for the next 24 hours only. They must now travel through the night, against time, and find what Quentin’s heart wants most. As the Paper Towns movie is about to debut in theaters around the world, the stars of the movie are making their way around to promote it further.
In an interview with Ms.Delevingne, expressed that when she read the book and then the script, a lot of the stories along with things that were done were parallel with what she had been through. She continued in saying that she recognized and identified with her character and a lot of things in the script that Margo says have been said by her before, which was really freaky to her.
The actress went on to discuss the qualities that were shared with her character, saying that the feeling of being very impulsive and living on instinct quite a lot of the time are the things that is within them both. In addition, Delevingne also stated that co-star Wolff was a major help for her to nail her audition.
“I think it was really Nat that helped me,” she said. “I think if it hadn’t been with him, I don’t think I would have got it because we just got on really well and we just spent the audition crying together.” With the novel having won the 2009 Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Novel, anticipation for the ‘Paper Towns‘ debut in theaters on July 24th is just about to erupt.
