Shailene Woodley Considered for Another Big YA Adaptation

Confirmed: Shailene Woodley is up for role of Hazel in ‘The Fault In Our Stars’



Following comments from author John Green and producer Wyck Godfrey this morning that big news was on the way for The Fault In Our Stars movie, Hypable can now confirm that Shailene Woodley is under consideration for the role of Hazel.

We confirmed with Woodley’s publicist this morning that while she has not been cast, she is being considered.

This, on top of the fact that Shailene Woodley retweeted John Green about big news, appears to suggest that a deal is near final.

We’ll keep you updated on any more developments as they’re made official.

The actress is currently one of Hollywood’s rising stars. She has been cast in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Mary Jane and Divergent as Tris, following a solid performance in The Descendants.

Aforementioned tweets from Green and Godfrey (who plugged us in the same tweet) are as follows:

OP Note: Sorry, they wouldn't post. Go to the link to read, but they're rather boring to be honest.

The Fault in Our Stars is John Green’s young adult novel which follows the heartbreaking story of Hazel and Gus. Just this week it hit the number one spot on the New York Times Bestsellers list – again. Producers are hoping to begin filming later this year, as Godfrey told us several months ago.

In other John Green news... Did anyone see his video chat hangout thing with President Obama? I'm beginning to find Green even more overrated than I thought before.
