Kate Winslet May Join ‘Divergent’ Adaptation

Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet might join the cast of Divergent.

At the moment, it’s not certain what role Winslet (pictured, via) will play in this film adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s New York Times-bestselling young-adult novel.

CinemaBlend.com speculates that she could portray one of the three following characters: head villain Jeanine Matthews, mother Natalie Prior and tattoo artist Tori. Variety reports that the movie will hit theaters on March 21, 2014.

According to Roth’s recent blog post, shooting will begin this spring in Chicago. As we previously reported, Golden Globe-nominated actress Shailene Woodley will star as Beatrice “Tris” Prior.

Summit Entertainment has also not yet hired an actor to be the face of Tobias “Four” Eaton. (via Indiewire)
