What's Next for the 'Divergent' Cast?
So, you (and apparently all your friends) saw "Divergent" this weekend, and now you want to know all the nitty gritty details about everyone in the movie, right?
Well, we’re right there with you on that and are happy to help with this handy dandy little breakdown of what the stars of “Divergent” have coming up next (aside from "Insurgent," for those who’ll return for movie two). So if you want to know where you’ll next see your favorite train-jumpers and serum-slingers and so on, look no further.
Shailene Woodley: “Divergent” wasn’t her first Young Adult book-to-film project (see also, “The Spectacular Now”), and it won’t be her last. Shailene Woodley also leads this summer’s adaptation of John Green’s powerful and extra feely bestseller, "The Fault In Our Stars." In it, Woodley stars as young Hazel Grace Lancaster, a cancer-stricken sixteen-year-old who finds first love in a hopeless place.
Theo James: There’ll be a couple more opportunities to tongue wag over the man who brought Four to smirky and swoonworthy screen life soon enough, as he boasts supporting roles in “Franny” — starring opposite Dakota Fanning as a pair of newlyweds — and “London Fields,” a thriller which features him as a married banker who gets caught up in a twisty, murderous love triangle.
Kate Winslet: Before she returns to break some more bad in “Insurgent,” Kate Winslet will next be seen in Alan Rickman’s period drama “A Little Chaos,” which she filmed right before she hit the “Divergent” set last year. Meanwhile, she’s also attached to star in John Hillcoat’s police corruption-slash-heist thriller “Triple Nine” alongside Aaron Paul and Michael B. Jordan, and in Kenneth Branagh’s next picture, “Guernsey.”

Ansel Elgort: Though he portrays her brother in the “Divergent” world, Ansel Elgort will next grace the big screen as Shailene Woodley’s on-screen lover — Augustus Waters, an existentialist teen whom she befriends at a cancer kids support group meeting — in “The Fault In Our Stars.” He’ll also appear in the next Jason Reitman comedy, “Men, Women & Children.”
