Shailene Woodley’s ‘Divergent’ Releases New Images

Fantasy adventure set to open March 21

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

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.

The studio noted that the series has sold more than 10 million copies as of Jan. 1. The March 21 release date is the same slot used two years ago 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.

Woodley’s character Tris is born into Abnegation but decides to join Dauntless, the faction based on bravery.
