Poised to be another Hunger Games, the film is Summit Entertainment’s adaption of Veronica Roth‘s young-adult novel, a New York Times best-seller.
Divergent is set in a futuristic dystopia where people are separated into six factions based on their personality traits.
The film follows Tris (Shailene Woodley), who is told that she is “divergent” because her personality test reveals she is incompatible with any one particular faction. Undeterred, she decides to join the “Dauntless,” the faction where Four acts as the standing leader and her eventual love interest.
James is a relative newcomer whose acting credits include Downton Abbey and Underworld: Awakening.
Divergent also stars Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort and Ashley Judd. Directed by Neil Burger (Limitless), the film has a theatrical release date of March 21.
