Waaay back in June 2014, author John Green confirmed that the Looking For Alaska movie adaptation had officially been given the green light, but almost a year onwards and things aren't looking quite so good.

In a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon, John revealed that plans for the film hadn't exactly gone according to plan, and he and the big wigs at Paramount are now going head to head over the whole thing.

The angry tweets from John, which have now been deleted, all kicked off when he sent out a reminder to fans that he doesn't have anything to do with the actors and actresses that are cast in movies. If he did, you'd have Swifty as Alaska.

But actually the drama is way more intense than fans first thought, as John went on to claim that "the movie studio that owns the rights to the book in question won't return [his] phone calls", and "haven't for months."

"I don't think they like me," John tweeted. "The feeling is profoundly mutual. So I can't even get someone to answer the telephone, let alone cast a film."

Eesh. It's been a bumpy ride for Looking For Alaska right from the word go, as the book has already been through two different directors, and the project as a whole is reported to have repeatedly fallen through.

Erm, EXCUSE US, but can you movie big wigs get your act together please? We need Looking For Alaska to make it to the big screen, and we need it now. Please.

Well this isn't exactly the best news in the world.

Gutted to hear that Looking For Alaska isn't going to plan? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
