This just in! After much speculation and rumors floating around, it has been confirmed that Shailene Woodley has officially be offered the role of Hazel Lancaster in the adaptation of John Green’s best selling YA novel, The Fault in Our Stars. John stated early this afternoon the following:
“I am absolutely thrilled that Shailene will be playing Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars. It means a lot to me that she is a fan of the book, and I know from our conversations that she has a profound understanding of Hazel. Watching her audition, I felt like Hazel Grace Lancaster was talking to me. It was eerie–and very exciting.”
The Fault In Our Stars tells the story of Hazel Lancaster and Augustus Waters, two teenagers who meet in a cancer support group and inevitable fall head over heels for each other. The film will be produced by Wyck Godfrey (Twilight saga) and directed by Josh Boone (Struck in Love).
