Back in March Shailene Woodley signed on for the female lead in The Fault in Our Stars, and since then she’s been joined by Ansel Elgort. Now, with filming set to begin imminently, True Blood star Sam Trammell and Laura Dern have joined the cast of Fox’s movie, according the TheWrap.
The film is based on Josh Green’s novel about Hazel Green Lancaster (Shailene Woodley), a teenager stricken with cancer who falls in love with Augustus (Ansel Elgort), a young man from her support group. Sam Trammell is set to play Hazel’s father in the drama, with Laura Dern as the girl’s mother. Nat Wolff co-stars as Augustus’ best friend, Isaac.
Josh Boone (Stuck in Love) is directing from a screenplay by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ((500) Days of Summer, The Spectacular Now). Filming will begin this month in Pittsburgh.
