Summit Entertainment is hoping to turn Shailene Woodley into the next Jennifer Lawrence with the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling young adult novel Divergent. Even though the film doesn’t arrive until next March, we’ve already seen a few images and a first teaser trailer for the film. Now Summit Entertainment has revealed two character posters, which feature the two main leads Shailene Woodley and Theo James. Check them out below.
Divergent is set in a futuristic dystopia 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.
Despite the talent involved, I don’t have much hope for this. Summit Entertainment hopes that this film will be successful enough to start another franchise. Who knows, maybe this will appeal to audiences more than recent bombs such as Beautiful Creatures and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
Theo James, Kate Winslet, Miles Teller, Ray Stevenson, Ashley Judd, Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, and Zoe Kravitz co-star in the Neil Burger-directed film. Divergent will arrive in conventional and IMAX theaters on March 21st, 2014.
