Here's my original post; Remember Shailene IS Tris. That's confirmed.
If you are a fan of Veronica Roth's Young Adult dystopian novel, DIVERGENT what do you think of Shailene Woodley as Beatrice (Tris) Prior? The breakout young actress from The Descendants is in talks to play the part. By the way, Woodley is doing so well, she's also in talks to play the Mary Jane role in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. The movie will be directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionists, The Lucky Ones) . The producers are hoping the material will generate some of the success that The Hunger Games enjoyed since the characters' ages are similar and both take place in dismal dystopian settings. And of course, the books are huge sellers and have a huge fanbase.

I haven't read the book - it's the first of a trilogy - so I don't know whether she fits the part. I do know that Roth and Woodley bear more than a passing resemblance to each other. Pretty, fresh faced, young or at least youthful, brunettes. I wonder if Roth has weighed in with her choice? Anyone know?
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
