Based on the novel...
EW.com has posted the first photo from Divergent, the adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth's young adult series. The film began shooting recently in Chicago. Shailene Woodley will play Beatrice "Tris" Prior.
The film is directed by Neil Burger and also stars Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Theo James and Zoë Kravitz.
Woodley said: "It's a good group. We're hanging out on weekends, celebrating birthdays. Everyone just wants to get to know one another. It's rare to get a big group together and not have any conflicts. It's really kind of amazing."
The film takes place in a dystopian future where society is divided into five factions. The photo below shows Tris taking the place of a Dauntless initiate and must stand still while knives are thrown at her.
She added: "It's about being selfless and standing up for what's right."
