Four actors currently in the running for the lead male role of Four in the book to film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent have been revealed by Deadline.
The gentlemen are Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, Lucas Till and Jack Reynor. Notably, Colton Haynes – who was speculated to be in the running after leaving Teen Wolf, following Roth on Twitter, and saying exciting news was on the horizon – is not named.
The actors are pictured below in the order listed above:
Deadline reports that these men are currently chemistry testing with actress Shailene Woodley, who nabbed the lead role of Tris last month. A decision on who will get the role of Four is expected soon.
Divergent hits theaters March 21, 2014. The story has a similar vibe to The Hunger Games and for that reason should do well in that market. The story follows Tris, who lives in a future Chicago that is separated in five factions in order to stabilize society. At age 16, each citizen must choose a permanent faction. However, for Tris, things don’t go as planned, and she has to survive an aggressive and physically demanding initiation. Beatrice Prior must uncover her true hidden strengths and risk her family, her newfound love, and her very own life to defuse a mysterious conspiracy which could change the balance of power forever.
