Shailene Woodley Cast in Divergent Adaptation

According to VarietyThe Descendants actress Shailene Woodley has been cast as Beatrice “Tris” Prior in the upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s Divergent.

Back in August 2011, Summit snatched up the film rights to Veronica Roth‘s Divergent. At the moment, men are being screened to play Tobias “Four” Eaton. Who would you pick to play this character?

Rumors have been swirling that some of the actors competing for this part include X-Men: First Class actor Lucas Till, War Horse actor Jeremy Irvine and Beastly actor Alex Pettyfer.

Roth has released two out of the three books in her Divergent trilogy. Book two, Insurgent, came out in October 2012. The young-adult novelist also wrote a Divergent short story called “Free Four.” It features the character Four’s re-telling of a pivotal scene found in the first book.

Book three is as-yet-untitled, but will be published in the fall of 2013.

This past November, Summit Entertainment has released the final installment of the Twilight film series.
