Shailene Woodley to Play Hazel Grace in THE FAULT IN OUR STARS Movie


Shailene Woodley has been making herself quite known in the YA world of books these days, as well as in the Marvel Universe (she’ll be play Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 2).  She’s already set to play Tris in the movie adaptation of dystopian world of Divergent, written by Veronica Roth, and now she’s going to play cancer stricken Hazel Grace Lancaster in John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars.  This is what John had to say about it: 

“I am absolutely thrilled that Shailene will be playing Hazel in The Fault in Our Stars. 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.”
