THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
JOSH BOONE (Director) made his feature film debut with Stuck in Love. Originally
from Virginia Beach, Virginia, he spent his childhood, much like the characters
in J. J. Abrams's Super 8, making movies on home video with friends. His
father's vast collection of Beta tapes opened up a world of cinema to Boone, who
was obsessing over classics like Once Upon a Time in America, Five Easy Pieces,
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Godfather and Casablanca by the age of 12.
While in high school, Boone attended summer film programs at The North Carolina
School for the Arts. He moved to Los Angeles in 2002 and worked as a production
assistant on a number of films. Boone spent years shopping projects he had
written to direct while working at a record store. Two years ago, he sat down
and wrote the autobiographical Stuck in Love, which covers a year in the life of
a fractured family. Boone, who describes the script as his hope chest, filled
with all the things he believes in and cares about, attracted the attention of
producer Judy Cairo, whom Boone sought out because of her involvement with Crazy
Next up for Boone is a feature film version of Stephen King's novel The Stand,
which Boone is adapting and will direct.
He lives in Los Angeles, CA with his wife and daughter.
