According to the Post-Gazette, the highly anticipated film adaptation of The Fault In Our Stars by John Green will begin filming in Pittsburgh, PA next month!
The film is being directed by Josh Boone, whose beautiful and heartfelt debut film Stuck in Love just released in theaters, and is scheduled to start shooting on August 26.
In the book, the setting where Hazel and Gus live is actually Indianapolis, IN, so Pittsburgh will stand in for filming. The movie will also be shot in Amsterdam, which if you’ve read the book know plays an important role in the story.
Shailene Woodley is set to star as Hazel along with Ansel Elgort as Augustus.
The movie will hit theaters sometime in 2015.
I will be keeping my eye out for some sort of casting call whether it be for extras or whatever. Pittsburgh isn’t very far of a drive from Brooklyn, so I want to visit the set if at all possible.
