Director Neil Burger (who helmed Limitless) is working on Divergent, a romantic action science-fiction movie based on the novel of the same name written by Veronica Roth. The film is produced by Summit Entertainment and is starring Shailene Woodley in the lead role as Beatrice Prior aka Trice.
Here’s a first official look at Shailene Woodley in the movie Divergent:
“Set in a futuristic dystopia, a teenager seeks to break free from her homogeneous society that divides people based on human traits. She leaves her faction and joins a rival group, where she falls for a older man.”
Besides Shailene Woodley, the cast also includes Kate Winslet, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen and Amy Newbold.
Have you read the novel the film is based on? Is it it any good? Divergent is the first book of a trilogy. So, if the film performs well in theaters, Summit will most likely develop a sequel.
The release date of Divergent is set for March 21, 2014.
