Meanwhile, Theo James and Shailene Woodley are on their way back to our movie screens as Lionsgate announced earlier today that the feature film adaptation of INSURGENT, the second installment of the blockbuster DIVERGENT action adventure franchise is well on it’s way to production in Atlanta, Georgia.
Damn, if that’s not a lot of doe. – “Divergent” trilogy grossed 22 million in book sale, which must make first time author Veronica Roth very happy. Roth joins Erik Feig, Co-President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, and Gillian Bohrer, Lionsgate’s EVP of Production & Development, who are overseeing the $260 million at the box office project for the studio.
INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the dystopian ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
Joining fellow cast members Woodley, James, and Kate Winslet are Academy Award® winner Octavia Spencer.
