In case you haven’t heard, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are busy filming the movie adaptation of the popular novel, Divergent.
In Divergent, Shailene and Ansel play brother and sister.
However, there is a ANOTHER film adaptation of a novel that these two are about to be involved in. The name of the book/movie is The Fault In Our Stars, and it's in the process of casting right now.
Here’s where things get a little weird. Shailene and Ansel have both just been cast in this second movie — as lovers!!
Granted, it’s not like these two are actually related, so there’s no REAL incest going on here, but it could be kind of strange for audiences to watch Ansel go from playing Shailene’s brother to playing her love interest in two very major roles!!
Some people definitely thought so, but Shailene just finds the whole situation to be super amusing. She said:
“I keep joking with Ansel about it. I’m like, ‘In a few months, buddy, you’re going to be my lover.’”
We like her attitude, LOLz!!
We’re all for it, and the filmmakers aren’t concerned about the dual on-screen relationships. They’re extremely excited for Shailene and Ansel to be working on The Fault In Our Stars together, and said:
“We were all swept away by the humor, charm, and aching vulnerability Ansel brought to his portrayal of Gus. His performance completely annihilated our concerns about his playing Caleb in Divergent with Shailene, and we are confident that the fans of Fault will fall in love with him the same way that Hazel does–slowly, and then all at once.”
Welp, sounds good to us!!
Looking forward to see who else ends up in the cast!!
