With director Neil Burger’s (Limitless) Divergent opening next weekend, I recently landed an exclusive video interview withTheo James (who plays Four). During the interview, James talked about how happy he is with the way the film turned out, if he was nervous doing the stunts, the sequel, why the police were called to the building where the cast was staying when they were filming in Chicago, what it was like working with Johnny Depp on London Fields, and more.
For those unfamiliar, the film is based on the Veronica Roth novel of the same name and takes place in a society where people are divided into factions based on their personalities. Tris (Shailene Woodley) is a young girl who doesn’t fit into any of the pre-assigned groups and faces grave consequences due to her status as a “Divergent.” Hit the jump to watch the interview. Divergent also stars Ashley Judd, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Jai Courtney, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort,Maggie Q, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Christian Madsen, and Kate Winslet.
