Divergent Movie Adds Jai Courtney
A Good Day to Die Hard star Jai Courtney has joined the cast of the dystopian action adventure Divergent as Eric, a menacing leader of the Dauntless faction.
THR reports, Courtney joins Shailene Woodley as Beatrice Prior/Tris, Zoe Kravitz as Christina, Maggie Q as Tori and Ansel Elgort as Tris’ brother Caleb Prior in the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young-adult novel.
Set in a futuristic dystopia, teenager Beatrice Prior (Woodley) lives in a society that is divided into five factions: Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Candor (the honest), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent).
Beatrice renames herself Tris and leaves her own Abnegation faction to enter another. To become a Dauntless, Tris must first pass a highly competitive physical initiation and determine where an unexpected romance fits into her life.
Divergent is scheduled to be released by Summit Entertainment in theaters on March 21, 2014.
