Breaking news! Shailene Woodley (The Descendents) is going to play Hazel in the film adaptation of John Green’s The Fault In Our Stars!
I am very excited about this.
Here’s the thing, tumblr: Shailene Woodley loves The Fault in Our Stars. She really does, and in her audition, she just was Hazel—at least to me. You can read what Josh (the director) had to say about it in the article above, but for me her commitment to the book and deep understanding of Hazel make her the perfect choice.
I am too conflicted about TFiOS becoming a movie. I love the book too much. I just don’t see how any movie can live up to this book, so I just am not ready to face casting. I will devour any news I hear about it, I’ll just be conflicted about it, OK?!?!
