Here is 20th Century Fox's description of the movie: "Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us — on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. 'The Fault in Our Stars,' based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love."
"The Fault in Our Stars" (directed by Josh Boone and written by Scott Neustadter) opens in U.S. and Canadian theaters on June 6, 2014. The movie also stars Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia, and Emily Peachey.
In an October 2013 interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "The Fault in Out Stars" author Green talked about being on the set of the movie: "I always thought that movies are pretty glamorous. And it it turns out that they are construction sites, essentially, and that actors work extremely hard, very long hours. They have to be very focused and dedicated. There's a massive crew of more than 100 people, all of whom are dedicated and working hard. It's really interesting to be one part of that, but only a small part."
Green also mentioned that he has a cameo in the movie: "I figured that it would be good for the movie. I don't want to be an actor. I enjoyed every day on the set, and I even enjoyed that day."
When asked if he got emotional while watching the movie being filmed, Green said, "I cried a lot, but a lot of times I'm crying that I'm so happy and grateful ...There's a scene that takes place in a church at night, and we were up all night filming it. That was really, really special. That's something I'll remember for the rest of my life. The three young people who are at the center of the movie — Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort and Nat Wolff — were all there. It was just really special."
