LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Cara Delevingne has been cast in Paper Towns.

The 22-year-old model will star as Margo opposite Nat Wolff as Quentin. The film is based on John Green's novel of the same name, with Jake Schrier as director and Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey as producers. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, who adapted Green's book The Fault in Our Stars, will pen the script.

Paper Towns follows Quentin and Margot, two neighbors who discover a man who committed suicide. Years later, Margot shows up at Quentin's bedroom window and asks him to take revenge on people who have hurt her. He agrees, but Margot vanishes the next day and he must follow the clues she left in order to find her.

Josh Boone's adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars debuted in June, and grossed over $299 million at the box office. Wolff portrayed August Waters' (Ansel Elgort) best friend Isaac in the film.

Delevingne is best known for her modeling work, but previously appeared in Joe Wright's adaptation of Anna Karenina. The burgeoning actress is scheduled for The Face of an Angel, London Fields and Kids in Love later this year.
