Divergent, the Movie!!!!

29 Nov

From the moment I read Divergent, I knew I wanted to see it as a movie. Recently, talks of this have come to fruition and we should be seeing a film come out for 2014. I am so envious of the creative nature and thought process that Veronica Roth has! If you haven’t read the book, I highly recommend it! You’ll read it in a day, I promise.

Exciting news are in order for those who have read the book. Officially, the Divergent movie adaptation has a director: Neil Burger. He directed The Illusionist and Limitless. The scenes and intracy of The Illusionist make me excited to see what he has up his sleeve for this spectacle. Further, Shailene Woodley is going to play Tris! To be honest, from the moment I heard that she was being considered, I was not that excited.

Having read Roth’s blog, she stated, “Shailene has proven how talented she is, as anyone who has seen The Descendants can attest. And physically, what’s most important to me, far and away more important than other aspects of her appearance, is that Tris does not look like an action hero– she looks like a slight person with youthful, delicate features, someone who shocks you with how strong and capable she becomes. To me, that is exactly the look Shailene has, exactly the look I’ve always had in my mind.” Having read that now, I can sort of picture how Shailene could fit the part. Only time will tell when I can actually see the movie!

Any thoughts on the Divergent film?
