Shailene Woodley is attached to star in the movie set in a future society that is divided into factions based on human traits. Neil Burger (Limitless) is directing.
Q will play Tori, a tattooed owner of a tattoo parlor who is part of the choosing ceremony that divides people into factions. She ends up helping Woodley’s character, Tris.

Kravitz will play Christina, a member of the Dauntless faction, which embodies bravery, and who becomes friends with Tris.

Elgort has nabbed the highly sought-after role of Caleb, Woodley’s twin brother who turns his back on his family, part of the Abnegation clan, to be part of the Erudite clan.
Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing, as is Pouya Shahbazian. The production is hoping to planning on shooting in Chicago this spring.
