"EW has confirmed an earlier Variety report that Kate Winslet is in talks with Summit Entertainment to co-star in Divergent, the Neil Burger-directed adaptation of the popular Veronica Roth novel that’s due in theaters March 2014.
Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) has already been cast as heroine Beatrice Prior in the YA drama (and intended trilogy), that takes place in a futuristic, dystopian Chicago. The male lead–mysterious and alluring “Four” — has yet to be cast and the studio is mum on the role Winslet is close to taking. But a good guess would be the villainous and brilliant Jeanine Matthews." Courtesy of EntertainmentWeekly.com
This is really awesome news if it holds true.
Kate is a fantastic actor.
I think she may be playing Tris's mom, but if so, why bring in such a known actor only to kill them off in the first film with barely any screen time??
Maybe Tris's mom will make a return in Divergent 3????!
