John Green, author of the Bestselling Novel The Fault in Our Stars, discusses TFiOS movie details through his Tumblr. Here’s what he said:

To clear up some misconceptions, here is a list of things publicly reported about the movie adaptation of my novel The Fault in Our Stars:

1. The movie will start shooting in late August in and around Pittsburgh, PA. (Why not Indianapolis? Tax incentives. I’m sure they’ll make Pittsburgh look like Indy. To be fair, they are very similar places.)

2. The movie will be scored by Bright Eyes members Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott.

3. The cinematographer will be Ben Richardson, the handsome young lad who also shot Beasts of the Southern Wild.

4. Shailene Woodley will play Hazel; Ansel Elgort will play AugustusNo other casting has yet been announced. Will I land the role of Gus’s mom? IT’S TOO SOON TO SAY. (Casting rumors abound; in most cases, I know exactly as much as you do.)

5. TFiOS will be directed by Josh Boone, who has an excellent tumblr, and who also directed the movie Stuck in Love, which you should see.

6. The screenplay, which I think is very faithful to the book in both theme and plot, was written by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who also wrote The Spectacular Now.

7. Every single person I’ve talked to who is involved in the movie—the producers, me, Josh, Shailene, Ansel, the casting director Ronna, Scott, Michael, everyone—really cares about the book and is committed to making the best movie possible.
