Collider talked with Josh Boone, director of The Fault in Our Stars starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. In the interview Josh Boone speaks about how perfect Shailene is for the rile of Hazel Grace Lancaster.

Read what he said about her below:

Audiences are getting more and more familiar with Shailene Woodley and what she’s capable of, as an actress. But, what was it about her that caught your attention and made you want her for the film?

BOONE: She was the first person that made me cry. I’d seen so many girls, and I was just really moved. I knew within maybe a minute and a half, after she started doing it. I had met her and had a dinner with her, and she was the nicest, most outgoing, coolest person, but I was like, “She doesn’t really seem like Hazel.” But then, she came in and she was Hazel. She was a completely different person, with the physicality and everything. It was pretty amazing to see. I was just blown away by her.

How challenging was it to then find an actor to play Augustus, opposite her?

BOONE: That was really challenging, and that involved a lot of chemistry reads between her and a lot of different guys to find the right combo that really felt like it worked.

The Fault in Our Stars starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort is set to begin filming on August 26th in Pittsburgh.

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.
