Set in a dystopian future where people are divided into factions according to certain personality traits, Divergent stars Woodley as Tris, a young woman who is told that she is Divergent and will therefore never fit into a faction.

After discovering a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she sets out to find out what makes her kind so dangerous, aided by the mysterious leader of one faction, Four (Theo James).

Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort and Ben Lloyd-Hughes are among the supporting cast of Divergent, which was scripted by Vanessa Taylor (Hope Springs) from an original draft by Evan Daugherty (Snow White and the Huntsman).

Divergent will be released on March 21, 2014.
