Lionsgate planning March 21 release

Lionsgate has released 10 new images from the set of “Divergent,” starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James.

The stills also include shots of Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q and Jai Courtney.  “Divergent” is set to be released next March 21

The Neil Burger pic is an adaptation of the first novel of Veronica Roth’s trilogy about a post-apocalyptic Chicago. Vanessa Taylor wrote the screenplay.

Lionsgate has noted that the release date is the same slot used last year for the release of  its mega-hit “The Hunger Games.”

Story centers on a society divided into five factions, each dedicated to a particular virtue — Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity and Erudite — with all 16-year-olds required on a particular day to select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives.
