Brenton Thwaites (“Maleficent”), Nat Wolff (“Admission”), Nick Robinson (“The Kings of Summer”), Noah Silver (“The Borgias”) and Ansel Elgort (“Divergent”) are all set to test this weekend for the lead male role in the film adaptation of novelist John Green’s young adult novel “The Fault in Our Stars” at 20th Century Fox.
The film tells the heartbreaking love story of a sixteen-year-old cancer patient named Hazel (Shailene Woodley), who is forced by her parents to attend a support group.
She subsequently meets and falls in love with the seventeen-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player who lost his leg to cancer. Augustus is the role being tested, and no one is considered a front-runner at this point.
Josh Boone helms the project from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are producing.
