Aaron Eckhart (“The Dark Knight”), Ray Stevenson (“Rome”), Miles Teller (“21 and Over”) and Theo James (“Golden Boy”) are all reportedly hopping onboard the upcoming adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young adult dystopian novel “Divergent” at Summit Entertainment.
The story is set in a society divided into five factions that each represent a particular virtue: honesty, selflessness, bravery, peacefulness and intelligence.
Once a year, sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. It’s then a teenage boy and girl set out to rebel against the system and discover a growing conflict that threatens to unravel this seemingly perfect society.
Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Ansel Elgort, Zoe Kravitz and Maggie Q are already attached to star in the Neil Burger-directed project.
Doug Wick, Lucy Fisher and Pouya Shahbazian are producing. The film is currently targeting a March 21st 2014 release.
