Hear from Michael Weber, half of the young screenwriting team behind this summer's huge hit, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. Weber and his writing partner Scott Neustadter faced the challenge of adapting John Green's wildly popular bestselling novel into a movie. While readers took a break from the emotional roller-coaster of Green's book, Weber and Neustadter were at work adapting a screenplay to keep readers, and everyone else, engaged for two hours. Find out how they made the leap from page to screen, what it takes to turn a novel into a film, and the pros and cons of writing with a partner. Hear more about their other critical and box-office hits: (500) DAYS OF SUMMER and THE SPECTACULAR NOW.
