Josh Boone, Director for the film adaptation of John Green’s bestselling novel The Fault in Our Stars , talked with ShockYa and revealed some amazing information about the movie. the film will start shooting on August 26th in Pittsburgh.

The film stars Shailene Woodley (Tris Prior) as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Ansel Elgort (Caleb Prior) as Augustus Waters.

Check out what Josh Boone said about The Fault in Our Stars in the interview below:

SY: In the future, would you be interested in both writing and directing films you work on?

JB: Yeah, I’m getting ready to make a movie for Fox right now, called ‘The Fault in Our Stars,’ which is based on a best-selling novel by John Green. I wrote the script for ‘Pretenders,’ which I’m going to do after that. I wrote the script with Judy Cairo, who produced ‘Stuck in Love.’ So I’m booked for two, and hopefully I get to keep working after that.

‘The Fault in Our Stars’ is a young adult novel by John Green, who’s a very famous novelist, and has a very strong online presence. He does YouTube videos with his brother that millions of people watch.

He wrote this beautiful book about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love. It’s very snarky and cynical and funny, and says interesting things about life and death. We cast Shailene Woodley from ‘The Descendants’ in that. We’re going to shoot that in Pittsburgh, staring on August 26.

When I came to this one, the script was already on the table. The guys who wrote ‘(500) Days of Summer’ (Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber) adapted the script. It was such a beautiful script, I really wanted to do it. I was really lucky that Fox liked the movie, and let me do it.

The Fault in Our Stars is slated to be released in 2014.

Ansel Elgort responds to Shailene Woodley “incest” controversy: says “It’s not weird”!

There has been lots of controversy surromding Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley lately. Only because of the fact that they are playing the roles of Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters in the upcoming film adaptation of John Green’s amazing The Fault in Our Stars. Fans had a problem with this because the two are also playing brother and sister in film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent.

I myself see this as a good thing. They could not have gotten these roles unless they were extremely fit to play them.

Ansel talked with Vulture about the way he felt about it

“I think that’s the magic of being an actor,” he responded. “You can do that and it’s not weird — people play different roles all the time, you know?” But people don’t usually go from brother to lover in quick succession, we pointed out. “No, not always,” Elgort admitted. “‪I feel like Shailene is the best actress I’ve ever met, who was good enough to read with, and I feel like I’m a pretty good actor, too, so I think it’s going to be no problem for us. It’ll be great.‬” So really, no squeamishness at all about this? “‪Acting is acting. We have chemistry as brother and sister, but we’re both good enough to have chemistry as lovers as well.‬” Acting is acting. Repeat that to yourself.

I am so excited to see Ansel and Shailene in both films. Not only because they are some of my favorite books but because I believe they are great ACTORS.

Shailene Woodley talks Ansel Elgort being cast as Augustus Waters in ‘The Fault in Our Stars’!

"The Hunger Games" Los Angeles Premiere - Red Carpet

Last week we found out that Ansel Elgort would be playing the role of the amazing Augustus Waters in the film adaptation of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. There were some mixed reviews by fans about him getting casted as Augustus.

Shailene Woodley, who stars alongside Ansel in another YA adapatation by Veronica Roth, Divergent, where they play brother and sister Tris and Caleb Prior. The fact that they are playing brother and sister in one film and then playing lovers in the next has a few fans concerned. Shailene Woodley talked with Entertainment Weekly about the way she feels about it.

“I keep joking with Ansel about it,” Shailene tells EW with a laugh. “I’m like, ‘In a few months, buddy, you’re going to be my lover. Ansel is so good. I’m so excited. He blew it out of the water,” she says of the time they read the parts of Gus and Hazel together. “And he’s a real sweetheart. I’m so excited to have him in my life.”

I truly do believe in the both of them. I believe that they are the best Hazel and Augustus and that is the reason that they were chosen for the roles.
