2. She’s got cred as an actress: Okay, I know a lot of people will be scandalized by the fact that their potential Tris was also the star of The Secret Life of the American Teenager. But have you seen The Descendants? Woodley delivers a powerful performance as a drinking, cursing teen seething with resentment for her father. Imagine how hard it is to act as though you dislike George Clooney. The girl should have gotten an Oscar for that alone. Plus, she comes with a stamp of approval from Clooney himself: “She really elevates that role from a stereotype. You can write and direct it. But at the end of the day, someone has to play it.”
Also, I hate The Secret Life of the American Teenager because the storylines and acting are so appalling. However, Ms. Woodley was recently nominated for an Oscar, which means she can act, so that is what makes me satisfied. Also, she does LOOK the part and I can believe her going from a timid girl to a kick-ass super chick, so that's a plus!
In the end, I have faith that the people behind this film will do their best to not only please the fans by casting the RIGHT person for each role, but by also being true to story and Veronica Roth's creation.
Also, the director of the film is Neil Burger who directed The Illusionist and Limitless.
So what are your thoughts???
Terrified by it??
Who did you want for Tris??
What about Four???
p.s. This is only talk. Shailene has not accepted the role yet and she might not, because she is also in talks to play Mary Jane Watson in the new AMAZING SPIDERMAN film opposite Emma Stone. But if she is smart, she will take both roles and make it work!
