laura dern joins fault in our stars Laura Dern joins 'The Fault in Our Stars'

It’s a major casting news day for the upcoming film, “The Fault in Our Stars.” After announcing that the major role of Isaac would be portrayed by Nat Wolff, Laura Dern joined the movie adaptation of John Green‘s bestselling YA novel.

The “Enlightened” actress will take on the role of Mrs. Lancaster, the mother to Hazel Grace (Shailene Woodley). The story follows Hazel as she meets and falls in love with Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort), a fellow cancer patient she meets in a teenage cancer support group.

The only role yet to be cast is that of Peter van Houten. Who do you think should portray the reclusive, alcoholic author that Hazel and Augustus idolize?

Production on “The Fault in Our Stars” begins next month in Pittsburgh, and is slated for a 2014 release date.
