Deadline surprised the Divergent fandom earlier this week by stating in a recent article that the adaptation is to begin filming in a few months.

Divergent, written by Veronica Roth, tops the Children’s Paperback books list this week. Lionsgate-Summit’s feature adaptation of the dystopian teen tale, with screenplay by Evan Daugherty, is in pre-production now with plans to start filming later this year.”

I have emailed Veronica Roth asking if this is true or not.

Divergent and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be filming at the same time, which may suggest the films will be released within months of each other.

(Editor’s note: Though filming may begin this year, Summit may hold its release for a couple years until they think the time is right.)
