Fans of Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” book series just can’t seem to get enough news from the set of the upcoming sequel, “Insurgent.” As if the release of the first trailer wasn’t enough to satiate their appetite, new photos from the set indicate action, excitement and injury coming to the film’s principal stars.
According to the Daily Mail, Shailene Woodley and co-star Theo James were photographed filming the last few scenes for the second installment in the four-part series in Atlanta Sunday. The film has been shooting in Atlanta for months and looks like it’s close to wrapping for good ahead of its March 20 release.
“Insurgent” focuses on the adventures of Beatrice "Tris" Prior (Woodley) as she is classified as a “Divergent” in a dystopian civilization that splits the population into factions based on character traits. The first film was released earlier in 2014 and set photos have been a hot commodity since filming began on the sequel.
The photos from the set of "Insurgent" show James’ character Four with a few noticeable cuts and bruises -- especially a large scrape on the side of his forehead. These marks are more than likely the result of makeup magic and are not actual injuries. This raises questions as to what happens in the climax that leaves the lead character injured.
Fans of the book series may think they have all the answers regarding the film’s plot, but that might not be the case. The first trailer for the “Insurgent” left many book readers scratching their heads when they saw that most of the film will be focused on a mysterious box with unimaginable power that only Divergents can open. Apparently this box is not featured in Roth’s novels, meaning that the movie will break away from its source material, likely to set up a film universe that doesn’t already have its beginning, middle and end set in stone.
