Tired of all these movies based on Young Adult novels yet? If not, then you’re in luck, because there are a few hundred or so more of these things coming down the pipe. One of them is “Divergent”, starring “The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s” It Girl of the moment, Shailene Woodley.
Here she is in full character, playing the franchise’s young female lead Beatrice “Tris” Prior.
The would-be film franchise is based on the books by Veronica Roth, and features directing creds by Neil Burger (“Limitless”), so it’s got that going for it. As to everything else — well, I guess you’ll go nuts for this if you love the books. For the rest of you who have never heard of the books, probably not so much.
“Divergent” is set in one of those futuristic dystopian societies, and follows a teenager who “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.”
The film co-stars Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Theo James, Maggie Q, Zoë Kravitz, Tony Goldwyn, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Christian Madsen, Ben Lamb, and is currently set for March 21, 2014.
