Been waiting for news on Tris, Four, and the world of DIVERGENT? Lionsgate has confirmed that filming has begun on INSURGENT, the second of four films set to be adapted from the popular trilogy by Veronica Roth! DIVERGENT grossed over $260 million worldwide and INSURGENT is expected to catapult the film series to a whole new level.
INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the dystopian ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Zoe Kravitz, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort, and recently added Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer to the ranks as Johanna.
INSURGENT is due out March 20, 2015.
