Shailene Woodley might jump in new photo from Divergent
Veronica Roth’s Best Selling novel DIVERGENT is getting the big screen treatment. Today we get a new image of THE DESCENDANT’s Shailene Woodley as the lead character looking to jump from a tall building. I have not read the novel so I can’t completely comment on what may be happening here but the onlookers seem to be pretty apathetic about the whole situation. Set in the future, DIVERGENT seems like just the medicine for those craving a good science-fiction with deeper societal connotations. Directed by Neil Burger (LIMITLESS), DIVERGENT stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Maggie Q, Tony Godwyn, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phif, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz and Ashley Judd. The film is set for a March 21, 2014 release date.
DIVERGENT – Official Book Summary: In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
