First Look at Theo James in Dystopia ‘Divergent’ by Neil Burger
A post-apocalyptic dystopia based on a popular novel? Where have I heard this before? For fans of Veronica Roth’s novel, a new image has been released for next year’s Divergent.
Neil Burger (Limitless) will direct the picture, tentatively set for a March 21, 2014 release, that stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants), Theo James (CBS’s Golden Boy), and Kate Winslet.
The film will take place in a futuristic (and post-apocalyptic) Chicago where society has been broken up into different factions. Tris (Woodley) learns that she is a “Divergent,” meaning she doesn’t fit into any faction. Of course, there is plenty wrong with the society she lives in, and she is the first to discover the truth.
We’ve reported on previous images pertaining to Divergent, but today’s focuses on James’ character. He will play Tobias Eaton (or “Four”). Check out the image above and continue to check back for more Divergent news.
