Well it’s begun. The casting for Divergent. I know I’m not the only one who’s been anxiously awaiting these announcements. Divergent is one of the very first YA books I’ve ever read and it absolutely gets credit for getting me into the genre. I’ve reviewed it and the sequel, Insurgent here on the blog and I can not wait to find out how this series ends! So much drama! So many questions. So needless to say I’m both excited and nervous to see how they translate the story to the big screen.
The movie isn’t set to come until 2014 but folks we have a Beatrice Prior! The body and soul of this amazing story. And who will be portraying her?
Star of the show Secret Life of the American Teenager and George Clooney’s daughter in The Descendants. I am actually completely unfamiliar with this actress, having seen neither her show or movie, but I have been assured by many that The Descendants is excellent. Although I’ve also been told by many that they’re very disappointed with his choice.
My first impression is that she *might* work as Beatrice “Tris” Prior. She doesn’t look like I imagined the character, but then I have to remind myself that Jennifer Lawrence Didn’t look like my idea of Katniss either.
But then she transformed from this:
And she was wonderful as Katniss! So if it comes down to looks alone I think they could transform her into Tris. Absolutely. But really it all comes down to the acting. So I need to check out the Descendants and Secret Life before making my mind up. Either way I’m just really excited that the ball is finally rolling for this film!
What do you think of the choice of Beatrice Prior? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Who would you have chosen instead? And who are you hoping they cast for Four?
