A new batch of images have surfaced online (via EW) from director Neil Burger’s Divergent. The film is an adaptation of Veronica Roth’s novel of the same name and is set in a futuristic Chicago where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personality. Tris (Shailene Woodley) doesn’t fit into any of these pre-assigned groups and becomes a target because she is a ‘Divergent’.
I haven’t read the book but everything I’ve read suggests it’s a very Hunger Games-esque story. Everything here looks good, Burger is a solid director (Limitless, The Illusionist), and there is a lot of talent in the cast. Show us a trailer.
The supporting cast includes Theo James, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd, Tony Goldwyn, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Ansel Elgort, Christian Madsen, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, and Amy Newbold.
