TFIOS screenwriters talk about TFIOS and The Spectacular Now

The screenwriters of "The Spectacular Now" and "The Fault In Our Stars," Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter talked to fansites like Page To Premiere about adapting both films for screen, having Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller act out their words and more.

They spoke briefly about TFIOS:

You guys also wrote the screenplay for The Fault in Our Stars and I was wondering since you saws Shailene Woodley work with you’re The Spectacular Now script did you write The Fault in Our Stars script in part to play into Shailene’s strengths?
Writers: No. She was a big fan of the book and our script. It seemed like there was a false story going around that it was predetermined that she was going to be Hazel Grace but she actually did audition and beat out a couple hundred people! I’m not even sure we had met Shailene when we wrote the script for The Fault in Our Stars. It’s great. We love that we are working with her again. She’s fantastic but TFIOS script credit is obviously to an amazing book.
Writers: We have been really lucky. We have been doing this run of adaptations and whether it’s Tim Tharp with The Spectacular Now or John Green with The Fault in Our Stars they have all been very supportive and open to what we are doing.

Shailene Woodley mentions TFIOS in recent interview with InterviewMagazine

Actress Emma Stone, who was in New York, connected by phone one late spring night with the 21-year-old Woodley in Chicago, where she was shooting Divergent, to discuss her graduation from Secret Life, her quickly expanding oeuvre, and the challenges of growing up, acting out, and coming of age—both on-screen and off.

STONE: It’s an L.A. issue. [both laugh] You now have three other movies in the works—White Bird in a Blizzard, The Fault in Our Stars, and Divergent—and they’re all very different from one another and are of different genres. How do you feel about being involved in all of these incredibly different projects?
WOODLEY: Well, you and I have talked before about having this fear of being the same person in every movie and this insecurity about playing the same role over and over again. So hearing you say that these films all sound so different makes me feel better about the fact that I won’t be the same person in every movie. I mean, I got to do Spectacular Now, which was super-indie. Then I got to do White Bird in a Blizzard, which is a crazy Gregg Araki movie where there was some minor nudity and some scenes that are very provocative. It’s darker than some of the other films that I’ve done. Then Divergent, which is based on a young-adult novel, is the first action movie I’ve done. Yesterday, I was tied to a post waving a stick with fire on the end of it in the air. [laughs] And then The Fault in Our Stars is the film I’m doing next, and I’m very excited about that one because it’s based on one of my favorite books [the 2012 novel by John Green].

Our director (who is traveling to Pittsburgh TODAY YAY) gave us a little insight into a few scenes the script entails by repling to a mikkasaurus on twitter. EXCITING.

Which other scenes do you think HAVE to be in the movie?

The Fault In Our Stars to be released in 2015?

Earlier today the Pittsburgh Film Office, the non-profit organization that helps filmmakers film in Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania, confirmed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that TFIOS filming will start on August 26.

The article also stated that TFIOS is the first movie to be filmed in Pittsburgh this year and will keep the film industry in Southwest Pennsylvania thriving.

However, according to the article, the release date for TFIOS is slated for the year 2015. Is it true? Well Wyck Godfrey, producer of TFIOS, has hinted before that they are hoping for a 2014 release date.

An exact release date is difficult to pinpoint, especially before filming has even started. Rumors will fly, but until we have confirmation, all we know is that TFIOS fans are ready to see the film whenever it opens.
