'Divergent' is currently filming in Chicago, and a new still [via Entertainment Weekly] released today. The still shows Shailene Woodley's character Tris during Dauntless initiation, about to jump from a building ledge. Theo James and other members of the Dauntless faction stand behind her as they watch.
Director Neil Burger spoke to EW about the scene and the still, explaining, "In this photo she’s already jumped off the train and onto a seven story building as part of the initiation rite for the Dauntless. The next thing they have to do is jump from the building and down through a courtyard that has a deep, black hole. It’s terrifying.”
He jokingly added, "Shailene says she’s not afraid of heights but that she’s afraid of falling. This makes perfect sense to me. But she really did stand on that ledge—this is a real photo. She’s incredibly game and so adventurous. In a way, she’s very Dauntless.”
'Divergent' will continue filming for the next few months, and will release in theaters on March 21st, 2014. In addition to Shailene Woodley and Theo James, 'Divergent' stars Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Aaron Eckhart, Ashley Judd, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz, and Ray Stevenson.
