"Paper Towns" is only the second movie made from a novel by John Green, so it's understandable that the "Fault in Our Stars" author is still not the most savvy person around set. It's not really a problem, except when his enthusiasm can ruin the audio for a pivotal love scene.
"I was so excited because [actor] Justice [Smith] put this line back in, 'I always think about imagining Santa complexly when I'm eating my Lucky Charms with my black Santa spoon.' I know that I wrote that line, but I also find it very funny. And I found it particularly funny when Justice was saying it," Green explains. "I was laughing the whole time they were making out, jumping up and down and yelping. But I thought I was far enough away that my joy would not be audible. But it turns out that yeah, they had to fix the audio. They have to take out my joy."

That sense of audible joy is justifiable, given the breakout success Green has found in film following similar success with his books. Last year's "Fault in Our Stars" was a certified hit, and he and the team behind it are hoping for a repeat with "Paper Towns." But don't expect a retread.
