John Green fans rejoice: more of The Fault in Our Stars author’s material is heading to the big screen. Universal has optioned the rights to Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances, a short story collection Green wrote with fellow YA writers Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle. The book consists of three, interrelated stories, all taking place at Christmastime. Johnson wrote the first story, The Jubilee Express; Green wrote the second, A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle; and Myracle the third, The Patron Saint of Pigs. The stories feature new romances, cheerleaders, and trips to Waffle House. This could end up a sort of Love Actually for the teen set.

Green tweeted:

Very excited that the movie rights to Let It Snow have been optioned. Yay @LaurenMyracle and @maureenjohnson!

Johnson added her relief that the news is out.

PHEW. I have been sitting on this secret for MONTHS. (

Earlier this week the adaptation of Green’s Paper Towns found its female lead. A film based on his Looking for Alaska is also in the works.
