With pre-production expected to begin soon on Summit's feature adaptation of Divergent and the female lead already cast, fans of the Veronica Roth's young-adult novel are likely anxiously awaiting word on confirmation for the male lead. Right now, it's looking like Alex Pettyfer, Jeremy Irvine and Lucas Till are among the contenders for the part. Just last week, we shared an update on the status of Divergent, which is expected to arrive in 2014 and will star Shailene Woodley as lead character Beatrice "Tris" Prior. The movie is confirmed to film in Chicago, which is where the story takes place - or rather, the story takes place in a futuristic/dystopian version of Chicago, where people are broken into five factions determined by their way of life. The story follows Tris as she chooses her faction and begins the training process in the hopes of securing a spot among them. »
