Although, this means a cross-over between books with Shailene and Ansel playing both Hazel and Augustus, and Tris and Caleb(Divergent). I don't think it's the two Young Adult franchises that matters, but the idea that we will see the play brother and sister, then they have to make their romance In TFiOS believable. They need to make us obsessive-with-detail booklovers forget about their other roles, and see them as just Hazel and Gus. I saw a tweet on Twitter recently which made me think about this cross-over : "You don't see Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook and wonder what Katniss is doing in Philadelphia". I saw Silver Linings Playbook a few weeks ago, and thought it was amazing. Both Jennifer Lawrence's and Bradley Cooper's performances were incredible. I was so caught up in her performance, I wasn't wondering about Jennifer not holding Katniss' bow and arrow.

Veronica Roth shared this photo in a tweet to John Green, with the caption " Oh no! You left your Gus & Hazel in Chicago! " Personally, I love the castings for Hazel and Gus, and I think both Shailene and Ansel will have a really great chemistry. After working together on Divergent, they would have built this up, so by the time they get to the filming they would already have a good relationship. Just like everyone else who is a huge fan of both books, maybe it would have been nice to see different people. I mean, I will struggle to differentiate between the two, and while watching the movie I will probably be thinking : "That's Tris!" . Although, I was never really sure as Shailene Woodley as Tris, the fact she has been cast in both roles, shows she is a great actress.
I think it would have been nice to see different people play the parts. It will be really difficult to see them as brother and sister in the next Divergent movie's, after The Fault in Our Stars and their relationship there. Maybe if they wait a year or so after Divergent to release The Fault in Our Stars, it would work. I just think it will be difficult to see them as separate characters. Although, they could easily prove me wrong when it comes to Divergent. I love them as Hazel and Gus though. The banter between John Green and Veronica Roth is something I'm really excited to see!
What do you think of this crossover?
