Everyone’s Favorite Sob-Inducing Teen Romance Set to Film in Pgh

Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters are two terminally ill teenagers who meet and fall in love.  If you think that sounds like a melodramatic Afterschool Special (teens, do you understand this reference?), I don’t disagree with you.

Despite my initial meh feeling toward it, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green had me sobbing.  Noisily.  Embarrassingly.  I was crying.  I was driving.  It was raining.  The world was a bit blurry.  I admit, I should have pulled over as my tears were a danger to my driving abilities.  However, I continued driving and kept telling myself, I’ll stop crying soon.  It can’t get any sadder.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported The Fault in Our Stars will shoot in Pittsburgh beginning August 26.  I can’t wait to see how the script writers interpret the sadness, the excitement and scariness of first love, and the other jumbled emotions that make up this intense book.

Fans have been debating for months since the bestseller’s publication which actors should portray the book’s main characters.  It seems official decisions have finally been made with Shailene Woodley playing Hazel and Ansel Elgort portraying Augustus!  These casting choices and the script writers’ past successes are getting people hyped.  Shailene and Ansel are also acting in Divergent!
