Model-turned actress Cara Delevingne just got a big break. She’s reportedly been cast as the lead role in the upcoming Paper Towns, the next YA movie to be based off of one of Fault in our Stars author John Green’s bestsellers. The news comes from Variety.

Delevingne will play Margo, the mysterious lead female character of the story. The male role of Q is to be played by Nat Wolff, who recently starred in the Fault in our Stars adaptation. Paper Towns follows two teenagers who share a bond after, as kids, they find the body of a man who committed suicide. Flash forward to senior year of high school, when Margo appears at Q’s bedroom window trying to persuade him to get revenge on the people who’ve hurt her. When she vanishes the next day, Q follows Margo-esque clues in an attempt to track her down.

Jake Schreier will direct. Fox grossed $280 million worldwide with The Fault in our Stars, so expect Paper Towns to get some buzz.
