Here’s what we know. Wyck Godfrey was looking for a director for ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ movie. Now, it seems we might actually get someone other than a director. Rather, could we possibly be getting an actress for lead role of Hazel Grace Lancaster?
Shailene Woodley has been confirmed by Hypable as “in consideration” for the role of Hazel Grace Lancaster in the upcoming adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. If John Green and Wyck Godfrey’s tweets are anything to go by, it seems like she’s probably going to be cast in the role, unless this news is director-related. Since, in previous reports, Wyck Godfrey has said he would wait for a director to cast any actors.
Big news is forthcoming in re The Fault in Our Stars movie. THIS HAS BEEN A VERY EXCITING COUPLE OF DAYS.

What do you guys think? Is this a step in the right direction? Even if this is to be confirmed in the near future, I wonder why they would go ahead with signing on an actor for the lead role if they don’t have a director yet? Wouldn’t the director want to be involved in who’s cast in a movie that he/she is directing? Something to consider is that they already have the director in the bag and they haven’t announced it yet. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
