Today marks the end of the first week of filming for the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Filming began this past Monday in Pittsburgh. John Green has been on set watching his creation come to life. He seems to be just as excited as, if not more than, the fans. Check out this special The Fault in Our Stars vlog to his brother, Hank:
There’s still so much to shoot for this movie, but it’s already so exciting! With all the little images and comments that John is posting on his Tumblr, my hopes for this movie just continue to rise. All the people working on the movie really seem to care about the book. They want it to be the best that it can be because they love it. It’s such a well written novel with an incredible story. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be changed by printed words on paper.
In a related note, the girl that inspired John’s creation of his main character, Hazel Grace, has had her dream realized posthumously. Esther Earl is finally an author. The cover of her book was revealed recently and you can see a sneak peak of some of the content here.
Both of these books are worth a read. Curling up with a book is the perfect way to spend a holiday weekend. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend and Happy Labor Day!
