Comic-Con: 'Divergent' Star Shailene Woodley's Plans for a Zombie Apocalypse? Tobacco (Video)

Author Veronica Roth also tells THR she has a plan to fight an attack from the undead.

In Divergent, the main characters are dealing with plenty of life-threatening situations after they join the Dauntless, a group of people tasked with being the warriors of society.

But one thing they don't have to face is the undead.

So when the stars of the upcoming Summit film, Shailene Woodley and Theo James, sat down at Comic-Con with THR, we were eager to hear their own plans for survival for a zombie apocalypse.

Woodley, who starred in The Descendants, had a pretty unorthodox idea.

"I would plant tobacco because I think it would be a good thing to trade with," she says.

Veronica Roth, who wrote the popular YA novel that the film is based on, also had a great idea: Head to the nearest Costco.
