Apparently there is a lot of fightin’ going on in Neil Burger’s sci-fi “Hunger Games”-wannabe “Divergent,” which is a bit of a surprise. But judging from the batch of 40-plus new images for the movie, apparently it’s all fightin’ and shootin’ and climbin’ and punchin’ all the time. That should make for a decent movie for the boys who will no doubt be dragged to this thing by their significant others who have read the Veronica Roth books from which it’s based.
The sequel, we’re told, is already scheduled to shoot. But then again, when isn’t a sequel already “scheduled” to shoot or being “developed”? That’s like saying Hollywood loves money. Standard operating procedure these days.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all Divergents, Tris must learn to trust in the mysterious Four (Theo James) and together they must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. Based on the best-selling book series by Veronica Roth.
Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Ray Stevenson, Mekhi Phifer, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn.
