Following the huge success of The Hunger Games movie, it was no surprise when it was revealed that the hit novel Divergent was being adapted for the big screen, since the two stories have a very familiar feel to one another. It did not take long for the cast to be brought together and a crew brought on board, before the Divergent movie could get underway, eventually hitting the big screen this year.

While, Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor were the two who adapted the screenplay for the Divergent movie from the Veronica Roth novel, the man responsible for bringing the Divergent film to the big screen was Neil Burger. With the movie now hitting the big screen, the cast and crew have been talking about the project and Neil has revealed what was the biggest change that he chose to make for the movie, from the book.
 
Burger told Collider, "The biggest change that we made is radical but it doesn’t feel radical. It serves the spirit of the book. I wanted to make the book more of a utopia to start with, more of a communal utopia. In the book it’s kind of a classic dystopia, bleak, crumbling world. But I thought that we wanted to make—Tris wants to be a part of the world. She wants to find her place in it, she wants to belong. I wanted to make the world, at least on first glance, worth belonging in, worth belonging to, so that we would be with her as she was making her choice. Whereas I felt like if Dauntless was this horrible, cruel place right from the beginning, then why does she so want to be a part of it? And you sort of would question her choice and get frustrated with that character. So, that was a big thing, to make it a communal utopia."
