Home » Divergent & Insurgent Interviews – Shailene Woodley, Theo James & director Neil Burger

With the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young adult novel already a runaway success in the US, the Divergent team jetted over to Europe where the cinematic adventures of heroine Tris Prior look set to receive an equally warm welcome when the film opens in the UK on 4 April.

Shailene Woodley and Theo James, who star in the story of a futuristic Chicago where society is split into five factions based on personality type, and director Neil Burger (Limitless), were all in Berlin for the movie’s premiere.

As well as chatting about all things Divergent, Shailene, Theo and Neil were also happy to chat to Flicks And The City about the hotly anticipated sequel, Insurgent.

Watch Shailene Woodley, Theo James and director Neil Burger talk to Flicks And The City at the Berlin premiere about what they enjoyed most about making Divergent, the importance of strong female characters on screen, what they think about the sci-fi story set in a distant future, and what they’re looking forward to about filming Insurgent:

Shailene Woodley talks to Flicks And The City about her character in Divergent, why she’s looking forward to delving into the darker story of Insurgent, and how she found shooting The Fault In Our Stars with her on-screen brother from Divergent, Ansel Elgort. And Shailene can’t contain her excitement about the upcoming adaptation of John Green’s Paper Towns starring Nat Wolff!

Theo James chats to Flicks And The City about what he hopes young audiences will take from his portrayal of the character Four and what scene he’s most looking forward to shooting for Insurgent:

Divergent is in UK cinemas on 4 April 2014.
