After beating out the likes of Brenton Thwaites, Nat Wolff, Nick Robinson and Noah Silver for the role, Ansel Elgort has been chosen for the male lead in The Fault in Our Stars, according to Variety.
The movie will reteam Elgort with his Divergent co-star Shailene Woodley. Elgort will play Augustus ‘Gus’ Waters, a former basketball player who lost his leg to cancer and meets Woodley’s character in a cancer support group. The two unsurprisingly begin to fall for one another.
Josh Boone is on board to direct the adaptation based on John Green’s book, which shoots later this year.
