With director Robert Schwentke’s Divergent sequel, Insurgent, opening this weekend, I recently sat down with Miles Teller for an exclusive interview. He talked about what it was like on the set of the sequel, working with the great cast, what the last year has been like, director Todd Phillips’ Arms and the Dudes, which also stars Jonah Hill, and more.
In The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series, the principal characters are on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it. The film stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet, Daniel Dae Kim, Maggie Q, Ray Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz. For more on the film, watch the trailers.
Here’s Teller followed by bullet points of what we talked about.
- What was the last year been like?
- What was it like on set making Insurgent compared to the first film?
- How their director (Robert Schwentke) loves cigars and meat and would share with cast.
- Talks about working with Todd Phillips and Jonah Hill on Arms and the Dudes.
