Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber talks TFIOS and Shailene with Huffington Post

TFIOS screenwriters Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter recently talked to Huffington Post about their latest movie "The Spectacular Now" (which also stars Shailene Woodley)

You're working with Shailene again on "The Fault In Our Stars." Did you tailor the script to her strengths, having seen them first hand on "The Spectacular Now"?

Weber: We didn't have to change the script much for her, but it helps that we have a shorthand. We talk all the time about these things, because now we've been to war together. She knows that there's always a dialogue with us on everything. It's just great to have that with someone and that trust is there.

Neustadter: The objectives are always the same. One of the things that's really nice about Shailene -- and it was this way with everybody on "Spectacular Now" -- was that we all knew what we wanted it to be, and if something wasn't feeling that way, we all talked about. "It should be X and it's Y, let's figure that out." With "Fault in Our Stars," Shailene's idea of what it should be is exactly what ours is. If she has a question about something, we talk about it. That it's based on a terrific book that she loves -- we all want to do justice to this piece of material. It's just a great thing that we're excited about.
