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.
