Shailene Woodley takes a look of what is below her — or lack thereof — in this new still from Divergent.
Set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.
In case you missed it, author Veronica Roth just debuted the third and final book, “Allegiant”, cover!
“LOOK at it. Isn’t it gorgeous?” she wrote on her blog, continuing, “A short note about that symbol: no, it is not a faction symbol. It is, however, a symbol that appears in the book. I can’t really share more than that– you’ll have to read it for yourself! (I can’t wait for that either!) Also, yes that is O’Hare at the bottom. No, I can’t say more. AHH! Too many secrets.”
Ansel Elgort is set to re-team with Shailene Woodley as he has been offered the role of Augustus Waters in the highly anticipated film The Fault in Our Stars, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The 19-year-old actor is currently filming the dystopian flick Divergent with Shailene as a brother-sister pair.
“Ansel is whip-smart and uber-charismatic and everything I dreamed for Augustus Waters,” the novel’s author John Green told EW. “I am by nature a cautious pessimist, but I’ll just say it: Now that we have Shailene and Ansel, I am completely, unreservedly psyched about this movie.”
“Ansel Elgort is the epitome of the boy John Green brought to life so vividly in his novel and he truly embodies the character traits we admire so much about Gus,” director Josh Boone added. “His humor, sensitivity, honesty and confidence floored us. Watching him with Shailene was like seeing the film for the first time. Hearing then say okay to each other was incredibly moving. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have found our Gus.”
