Divergent has finally started filming in Chicago, after months of speculation on casting. In the end, Shailene Woodley and Theo James were cast in the lead roles of Beatrice Prior and Four, respectively. Now, we have gotten our very first look at Divergent, via Entertainment Weekly.
The image shows Woodley's Tris standing against a wall, with various knives thrown against it. There isn't much more to go on as Woodley is wearing a nondescript t-shirt and you can't really see anybody else in the picture, but some fans have already started complaining that Woodley's hair doesn't match the description in the book. However, considering that Jennifer Lawrence also faced similar complaints when she was first cast as Katniss, we'll just have to wait until the release of the first trailer to really gauge whether Woodley manages to capture Tris.
Woodley also spoke to EW about filming with the rest of the cast, which includes Zoe Kravitz and Kate Winslet, saying, "It’s a good group. We’re hanging out on weekends, celebrating birthdays. Everyone just wants to get to know one another. It’s rare to get a big group together and not have any conflicts. It’s really kind of amazing.”
Considering that this film will likely turn into a franchise, it's a good thing the actors are getting acquainted with each other. 'Divergent' is currently set to come out on March 21st, 2014 and stars Woodley, Kravitz, James, and Winslet alongside Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, Jai Courtney, Maggie Q, Miles Teller, and Ansel Elgort.
