I’ll cut right to the case! We now have Christina, Tori and Caleb!! Maggie Q will be playing TORI, Ansel Elgort CALEB and Zoe Kravitz CHRISTINA. The Hollywood Reporter has a great article on this new casting!
Maggie Q, Zoe Kravitz and Ansel Elgort have closed deals to join the cast of Divergent, Summit/Lionsgate’s adaptation of Veronica Roth’s YA novel. Shailene Woodley is attached to star in the movie set in a future society that is divided into factions based on human traits. Neil Burger (Limitless) is directing.
Q will play Tori, a tattooed owner of a tattoo parlor who is part of the choosing ceremony that divides people into factions. She ends up helping Woodley’s character, Tris. Kravitz will play Christina, a member of the Dauntless faction, which embodies bravery, and who becomes friends with Tris. Elgort has nabbed the highly sought-after role of Caleb, Woodley’s twin brother who turns his back on his family, part of the Abnegation clan, to be part of the Erudite clan.
Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing, as is Pouya Shahbazian. The production is hoping to planning on shooting in Chicago this spring.
Q stars as the title character in The CW’s Nikita action drama. Movie-wise she last appeared in 2011’s vampire action movie Priest. She is repped by CAA, Untitled and Echelon Talent. Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz, who appears in Lionsgate’s other YA franchise, The Hunger Games. The actress appeared in X-Men: First Class and has M. Night Shyamalan’s Will and Jaden Smith-starring After Earth in the can. She is repped by Paradigm, Untitled and Edelstein, Laird. Elgort has only one credit under his belt, MGM’s upcoming remake of Carrie, but insiders are already pegging the son of fashion photographer Arthur Elgort as one to watch. He is repped by CAA and Brookside Artists Management.
