Actors Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort can currently be seen in theaters playing brother and sister in the futuristic thriller Divergent, but this summer the two play love interests in the highly anticipated adaptation The Fault in Our Stars. Based on the swell John Green novel of the same name, the story revolves around two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love. Today, 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette and a few new images from the pic, giving fans a brief behind-the-scenes look at director Josh Boone’s adaptation. The character-centric story is a refreshing reprieve from the glut of genre-tinged studio fare, and as a fan of the book, I don’t see how Woodley doesn’t knock this role out of the park. The first trailer, at least, is incredibly promising.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette and images. The film also stars Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia, Emily Peachey, and Willem Dafoe. The Fault in Our Stars opens June 6th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Fault in Our Stars:
Hazel and Gus 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.
