Three actors have finalized deals to star in the Divergent movie which is set to begin filming next month in Chicago.

Maggie Q will play Tori (the tattoo artist), Zoe Kravitz will play Christina (Tris’ eventual friend), and Ansel Elgort will play Caleb (Tris’ brother).

Q may be known to our readers as the star of The CW’s Nikita. Kravitz is the daughter of Lenny Kravitz who stars as Cinna in The Hunger Games. Elgort’s only other role is the upcoming film Carrie.

The only other people who have been cast so far are Shailene Woodley, who will star as the lead female, and Kate Winslet, whose role is still unknown. The film is directed by Neil Burger.

Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the story.

Earlier today we pointed out a tweet from Alexander Ludwig who screen tested for a role in Divergent today. We believe it could be the role of Four. Lionsgate has been searching for an actor to take the co-starring role for months but progress has seemingly been slow.

Divergent is the first of three books in the trilogy of the same title by Veronica Roth. The second one, Insurgent, was released last year. Book three will be released this October but it does not yet have a title or cover. Lionsgate is eying the franchise as its next Twilight/The Hunger Games.

    I Really love all 3 of these castings. It’s kinda funny that Zoe is in Divergent when her dad is in Hunger Games.

    • Gary65

      And Zoe was in X-Men: First Class, alongside JLaw.

  • Kristina

    Um, YES!!! This is going to be such a good movie…. if they cast Four right.

  • Gary65

    Recently got into Nikita. Love Maggie Q :D

  • lorepottter

    her dad is frickin Cinna
    like wut
    heres how lionsgate works: Cinna has a daughter named Christina and when she was born her dad got to choose her faction because thg was over and he fled and she never knew her dad
    yay lionsgate

    Now if they just cast Brenton Thwaites as Four, I’m interested. I personally thought the book was mediocre enough that the lead role actors will make or break my interest in seeing this adaptation.

    Great; Perfect; and I don’t know him but he seems like a fine Caleb!!

    I’m trying but I just can’t imagine Alexander Ludwig as Four. It might be because I see his face and all I see is evil Cato lol! I was reading on wikipedia that his dad is the Co-Chairman of the Board for Lions Gate Entertainment. If thats true then I guess that it’s obvious that he will get a role in the movie right?

      Alexander confirmed that he won’t be casted as any character in the movie. :) He says it’s too similar as THG… Not my opinion though, but I’m very happy he won’t.

  • Gina

    I pictured Zoe as Christina the whole time while reading that book! So strange but yay!

  • NicoBidou

    Maggie !!!!! I love you ! Now, I will for sure read the book !

    I vote NO on Alexander Ludwig as Four. First, YUCK. Four is supposed to be hot–rough, sexy, dangerous, and kinda dark. Second, A.L. is already Peeta Mellark–I don’t want to see him in another fav book-movie running at the same time; it messes with my image of the characters as I’m reading. A.L. is great as Peeta, but he just isn’t Four. I’d like to see someone like Paul Wesley *yum*

    • blujai

      Alexander Ludwig is Cato

    • Danny Ruiz

      I’m thinking if anything he would be cast as Peter. But that would be weird with his role in thg. Eh, who knows. Good thing is that the cast is shaping up pretty good!

  • Danny Ruiz

    The cast seems great so far. Spot on. Things are shaping up pretty well… Initiates ;P

  • Crazy-Eight23

    Please don’t cast Alexander Ludwig as Four! I like him, but not for this role. I don’t know who should be Four! I can see him when I read, but not in any of the actors around today.

  • Ikao

    I hope Ansel Elgort wil be great as Caleb, he’s my favorite in Divergent series :(

    I love these castings – but is anyone else not so happy with Shailene Woodley as Tris?

    • Kate

      She is nothing like Tris!!!! I really don’t like that casting choice.

  • http://www.facebook.com/annabelle.rose.568 Annabelle Rose

    I can’t stand Shailene Woodley. Her acting is horrible and I don’t see her as Tris AT ALL! I am so pissed at that casting. It’s bad enough she’s ruining Mary Jane.

  • anonymous

    Pretty happy with the cast so far, I love Shailene for Tris. I didn’t at first but I think I was being to nieve about it cause she doesn’t match the tris I pictured. But now I think we should just wait and judge after we’ve seen her as tris cause she’s a good actress and might surprise us. Also everyone they have suggested for four have not been the right four. It could ruin the whole film if he is cast wrong. Also Ludwig is cato, not peeta. And he would be a good peter.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Anna Kendrick would be perfect for Tris?

  • Ridley

    I thought the books would be better or as good as thg but i didnt like tris caracter she wasnt tough like katniss i mean she turned kind of annoying for me but as for the movie cast looks pretty good
