While our thoughts are on Boston today, some surprising Divergent news has slipped through the cracks. First was the disappointing news that Uriah will not be cast until the second film, an adaptation of the second novel in the trilogy: Insurgent. Also Justine Watchsberger (Gianna from The Twilight Saga: New Moon) confirmed through her twitter that she will play Lauren in Divergent! Lauren is a Dauntless member who helps train the initiates along with Four (Theo James).
Good for her! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful lady, and am happy to see her get this amazing role! Divergent is currently filming in Chicago right now, and the present release date for the film is set for March 21st, 2014.
