New Still of Theo James as Four in Divergent

20140102-074104

9News have not only featured Divergent in their list of ’14 films to look forward to in 2014′, but they have also shared this brand new still which features Theo and Shailene as Tris and Four!

“Divergent” (March 21). This adaptation of the popular dystopian novel finds the people of Chicago divided into factions based on their human virtues. Teenager Tris (Shailene Woodley, left,) learns she has three qualities instead of just one – meaning she’s “divergent” – and discovers dark forces are afoot in the city during her initiation process.   Jaap Buitendijk, Summit Entertainment

Divergent hits cinemas later this year. (April 4th UK/ March 21st USA)

Theo James Joins Cast of ‘The Most Wonderful Time’?

005~25

Although the news broke a few weeks ago, it seems like there is still no confirmation on this story.

The Wrap reports:

Oscar winners Alan Arkin and Diane Keaton, four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening and young stars Amanda Seyfried and Theo James are all in various stages of negotiations to star in Relativity’s heartwarming holiday comedy “The Most Wonderful Time,” an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.

Jessie Nelson (“I Am Sam”) is directing from a script by Steven Rogers (“Stepmom”).

Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh is producing with Nelson and Imagine’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Kim Roth. Relativity’s Tucker Tooley will executive produce with Ron Burkle, Jason Colbeck and Rogers.

Keaton and Arkin play Charlotte and Sam, a long-married couple who have been growing apart for decades and decide to host one last Christmas celebration before revealing to their family that they’re separating. Their grown children come home for the holidays with their own relationship issues and personality quirks, completely oblivious to their parents’ turmoil. As the entire family shares memories and creates chaos that includes a shocking episode at dinner, Charlotte and Sam begin to question their decision.

“The Most Wonderful Time” does not have a release date yet but Relativity is committed to making the movie in 2014.

Several cast members have been linked to the film over the course of development — though it’s a fresh project for James, the up-and-coming star of “Divergent” and Andrew Renzi’s indie movie “Franny,” which stars Richard Gere.

Arkin next stars in WB’s “Grudge Match” and Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm,” while Bening has Dan Fogelman’s “Imagine” and Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Search” on the horizon. Seyfried is also in high demand, with Seth MacFarlane’s comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” Noah Baumbach’s “While We’re Young” and the Russell Crowe movie “Fathers and Daughters” coming soon.

WME represents Keaton and James, while CAA reps Bening. Arkin is repped by ICM Partners and Principal Ent-NY, while Innovative Artists represents Seyfried.

As soon as we receive confirmation of this, we’ll be sure to let everyone know!

Theo James Talks Chemistry with Yahoo on the Set of Divergent

Yahoo have shared this video and article from their visit to the Divergent set earlier this year. In the video Theo talks about landing the role of Four and jokes about his chemistry with Shailene

“What’s up gurrrl?” Theo James says as Shailene Woodley strolls by on the set of “Divergent,” his eyebrows going in all directions.

This cheeky flirtation is in stark contrast to the cold, grey buildings surrounding us on the site of Abnegation, the “selfless” faction of the film’s futuristic society, in downtown Chicago.

Seeing as he was a virtually unknown actor – well, except for that small but unforgettable turn on “Downton Abbey” – before being cast in the coveted role of Four, the big love interest for Woodley’s Tris, it should be a relief for fans to see such chemistry. And the jokes didn’t stop there.

“I took her out to McDonalds and we had two shakes,” he said when we asked if they did anything to build their relationship. After expressing our own shock that they didn’t just order one shake with two straws, he added, “We didn’t do that – we thought that was too cliché.”

Touché. But, according to director Neil Burger, it was James’s strength, not his sense of humor, that won him the coveted role.

“Shai is a really fierce actress and so we needed somebody who was even stronger than her. A lot of times, Shai would push forward and the guys we were auditioning would go back,” he said of the audition process. “With Theo, it’s like no, no, she steps back. He’s just a really strong guy and a really great actor as well.”

We had the opportunity to witness some of Woodley’s fierceness firsthand, as we watched her and Ashley Judd, who plays her mother, shoot an intense action sequence that had them running, guns in hand, throughout the Abnegation neighborhood. In the scene, we see Tris – who was raised in Abnegation but opted to defect and become part of Dauntless, which is essentially the society’s brave, military faction – evolve into something of a leader, even as she learns a shocking truth about her family.

“I love that Tris is an incredibly strong woman, young adolescent, but she’s not anything extra-spectacular or extra-superior over anyone else,” Woodley explained. “She’s very normal in a lot of ways and I think that there’s something really beautiful about exploring what it’s like to be a normal teenager in a dystopian, futuristic world.”

“Tris is somebody who starts out, she’s a really unexpected character,” Burger said after describing his star as “one of the best actresses of her generation.” Nobody thinks Tris is going to be tough enough to fight and to make it in Dauntless, he explained. “And then she turns out to be this real badass.

“In a way, Shailene’s the same way.”

Divergent” hits theaters on March 21.
