There have been plenty of casting rumours surround the Neil Burger big screen adaptation of the Veronica Roth novel Divergent, ever since it was announced that the movie was being made. It was previously claimed that Jack Reynor was in line for the male lead but, as he has just accepted a role in Michael Bay’s Transformers 4, he is now out of the running.

Another name that has already been linked to the role is Brendan Thwaites and three more actors have been rumoured to be in the running. Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike), Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) are all set to battle it out for the lead in Divergent.
 
The official synopsis for Divergent is as follows:
Lucas Till in X-Men: First Class
Lucas Till in X-Men: First Class
 
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
 
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
 
Divergent will be directed by Neil Burger, based on the screenplay written by Evan Daugherty. So far, Shailene Woodley is the only person to be cast in the movie, which is set to be released on March 21, 2014 in both the US and the UK.
