THE FAULT IN OUR STARS Movie Set for June Release

The fault in our starsThe film version of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, (Penguin/Dutton), is now set for release on 6/6/14.

When the names of the stars were revealed earlier this summer, Shailene Woodley as Hazel and Ansel Elgort as Gus, the two teenagers who fall in love after meeting in a cancer support group, Green launched a spirited defense of the choices on his Tumblr page.

Green pointed out, “There seems to be some concern that Ansel and Shailene are playing siblings in a different movie [the upcoming Divergent, based on the book by Veronica Roth]. I guess I can understand that, but they’re actors … I mean, no one watched Silver Linings Playbook and thought, ‘When did Katniss move to the suburbs of Philadelphia?’”

In a new interview in The Pittsburgh Gazette, where filming is currently in progress, he notes that the screenplay is remarkably true to his novel, “almost every line of dialogue in the movie is from the book.”

Green has been updating fans from the movie set via Twitter and his Vlogbrothers videos on YouTube. The most recent video from the set is below:
