EW has news about the film version of The Fault in Our Stars. After seeing over 250 girls audition for the role of Hazel Grace Lancaster, director Josh Boone has found his Hazel in Shailene Woodley.
Here is John Green’s reaction:
“I am absolutely thrilled that Shailene will be playing Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars,” John Green says. “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.”
Woodley has also been cast as the heroine in Divergent, so expect lots of YA Fiction fan fever to commence.
