This morning the highly anticipated feature film based on John Green’s young adult novel The Fault In Our Stars began filming in Pittsburgh, PA.

The movie’s stars and producers, including Wyck Godfrey, Josh Boone, John Green, and Ansel Elgort have been tweeting their progress leading up to the start of production including the quest to find the perfect Indiana jersey, star Shailene Woodley donating her hair to charity, set props, and some pre-production bowling.

The story follows two terminally ill teenagers, Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters, who meet in a support group for children with cancer and fall in love. (If you haven’t read the book don’t let the topic deter you, it’s amazing!) Shailene Woodley is set to star as Hazel along with Ansel Elgort as Augustus.

According to a recent casting calls the shoot will take place August 26th-October 6th, Monday – Friday only.

We thought it would be a good idea to start an open thread, like our Abduction Thread, so fans in the Pittsburgh area can have one place to discuss all of the movie’s filming locations.

Bookmark this page and use it to discuss The Fault In Our Stars, its filming locations, or any sightings of the cast you may have while they are shooting in Pittsburgh. If you have any scoop to share regarding TFIOS, you can also email us at olv@onlocationvacations.com, Tweet us, or add your pics and vids to our forum.

Hopefully we’ll have more details about exactly where they are filming soon! In the meantime, check out a few photos shared by the cast and crew below!

UPDATE: The Fault In Our Stars is filming on 11th Street in Oakmont, PA through Aug. 30, possibly Sept. 7.

Does anyone know where they will be Wednesday or Thursday? Would love to go up and meet the cast!


Danielle September 30, 2013 at 9:22 pm

If anyone hears where they will be filming Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday could you please let me know. I went to set today but got there right after everyone left unfortunately. Thanks!


Ryan September 30, 2013 at 9:27 pm

Hey Danielle! I got to meet John today! He signed my sisters book and I got a picture. You were right, he’s super nice. We also got to see Shai and Nat. If the wires and equipment were still there, they are most likely going to film at the church again tomorrow. Good luck!


Danielle September 30, 2013 at 9:37 pm

Congratulations! I’m so glad you got to meet him! I was thinking about going back tomorrow, but I’d need to go pretty early because someone told me they’d be done filming by the afternoon. I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet haha


Mimi September 30, 2013 at 10:14 pm

Where is it they are filming because my friend and I would really love to meet the cast but we don’t know the location


Danielle September 30, 2013 at 11:18 pm

“The Fault in Our Stars” at Allegheny General Hosp. – Suburban Campus this Friday (Oct 4th)


K October 2, 2013 at 11:36 am

Signs are being put up this morning. Base camp is in a parking lot on the north side of the hospital. Should be pretty good access.


Spencer October 1, 2013 at 11:41 am

Hey! Anyone know if they will still be in Pittsburgh Oct 10th through the 12th? and do they film on Saturdays?


steph October 1, 2013 at 11:50 am

Lin October 1, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Does anyone know where they will be tomorrow?


Danielle October 1, 2013 at 6:41 pm

They’re filming at a sound stage downtown tomorrow


Austin October 1, 2013 at 8:18 pm

Could you give a bit more info? What sound stage in downtown? I really want to go see the set.


Jane October 1, 2013 at 10:01 pm



Danielle October 2, 2013 at 12:57 am

I think it’s past the strip district. There’s a pretty large studio there, I’m not sure what it’s called though. You could probably google it. :)


Lin October 2, 2013 at 9:17 am

If I went, do you know if there’s a chance I could meet anyone while there? I heard that its a big place.


Danielle October 2, 2013 at 12:09 pm

If you have the time it’s worth a try, but it seems like kind of a difficult location to meet someone at.


Fran October 1, 2013 at 7:07 pm

Regarding Friday’s filming location at Allegheny General Hospital, does anyone know the time they’ll be there?


Alexa October 2, 2013 at 12:27 am

Does anyone know what sound stage downtown yet? And also, any word for Thursday’s location?


Abigail October 2, 2013 at 9:59 am

So Friday at allegheny general hospital!?


Abigail October 2, 2013 at 10:02 am

Does anyone know where they will be filming tomorrow?


Nobody Important October 2, 2013 at 11:13 am

31st street studios are on 31st. You go under the 31st street bridge to get there

They do not film on weekend.


K October 2, 2013 at 11:38 am

The Allegheny General for Friday is the Suburban Campus in Bellevue/Avalon, NOT the one on the North Side.


Kaitlin October 2, 2013 at 2:03 pm

AHHHH that’s awesome! That’s only 3-4 blocks from my house! :D guess I’ll be going to meet the cast again! Might get a photo with Shai this time if pre teens don’t swarm! And maybe I’ll bring Divergent instead for them to sign this time!!!!


sarah October 2, 2013 at 9:49 pm

Hey, um can I ask you a favor? If you manage to go, can you bring them a very, very important letter for me? My tumblr is helpimtiny if that helps but yeah, it would really really really mean a lot.


Hana October 2, 2013 at 1:09 pm

Just went to the 31st street studio and the security guard said they’re not there but he seemed a little..yanno. Anyone have any updates or can confirm what he said? Anything would help. Thanks :)


Nobody Important October 2, 2013 at 1:43 pm

He must be lying steak the place out


Hana October 2, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Well I can only look for him today so Im looking for as solid of info as possible. Did someone see them or was it confirmed to anyone that they’d be there? Checking other suspected locations until thenn. Thanks


Jane October 2, 2013 at 4:07 pm

Alexa October 2, 2013 at 6:39 pm

sarah October 2, 2013 at 9:47 pm

Any idea of where they’ll be on Friday or Monday? I’ve tried to get my hands on every resource and finally found this. Heard of people having some success and figure I might as well try to see if I can make it.


JMS October 2, 2013 at 10:10 pm

Alexa October 3, 2013 at 12:08 am

Austin October 4, 2013 at 1:52 pm

Ilana October 6, 2013 at 3:09 pm

Does anyone know where they’ll be today or tomorrow (Sunday or Monday)? Thanks guys!


annie October 7, 2013 at 9:25 am

They’re at 5th and Negley in Shadyside right now, shooting at the church there. That’s why there’s so much traffic backup on this rainy Monday morning.


Christine October 7, 2013 at 2:29 pm

Thanks Annie


Sarah October 7, 2013 at 2:44 pm

They are in Churchill this afternoon.


Doogie October 7, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Sarah October 7, 2013 at 6:45 pm

It is off beulah but probably done by now. Iy

Emily's Mom October 7, 2013 at 2:31 pm

The Strip District.


Maura October 8, 2013 at 10:53 am

Alexis October 7, 2013 at 9:59 pm

Anyone know how much longer they’ll be in town? I would do anything to meet John Green! Is he answering fan videos at all?


Katie October 8, 2013 at 3:20 pm

Any ideas where filming is tomorrow (wednesday)?


Samantha October 8, 2013 at 6:06 pm

They were filming a movie today on the North Side but I don’t know for sure which one. Lots of production trucks, lights, everything. Specifically the old Carnegie Free Library building (used to be for Allegheny City).


Hannah October 8, 2013 at 6:41 pm

Does anyone know if they’ll be in Pittsburgh this week 9th-11th? Thanks


Super Star October 9, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Are they still filming in Pittsburgh? If so for how long?? my daughter and I big John Green fans!!!


Jen October 11, 2013 at 11:10 am

I was an extra on set this week and I heard they finished filming in Pittsburgh on Thursday. They are heading to Amsterdam now for a few days and then they’re done filming!


angela October 11, 2013 at 12:00 pm

does anyone know where they will film in amsterdam? This book means a lot to me and i wanna go and look them up so badly!


Jen October 11, 2013 at 12:09 pm

I heard they are just going to be filming scenic shots of the city so they’ll probably be a bit of everywhere. They have filmed most of the Amsterdam scenes in Pittsburgh – the restaurant scene, Anne Frank’s house, etc.


Kaitlin April 2, 2014 at 12:01 pm

FYI all-

TFIOS is having a competition to bring back John green, Ansel Elgort, Shailene Woodley, and Nat Wolf to PA. Follow the link below to go to tumblr where you ‘note/reblog’ the PA post to bring them back!

I wish they had separate cities, but maybe that’s part 2 of the winning states? IE if we win to bring them to PA, who knows whether it’ll be in far away Philly, or in PGH.
