Fandango has released an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Divergent movie! There’re new interviews with author Veronica Roth and the cast, including Kate Winslet, Theo James, Shailene Woodley, Jai Courtney, Ashley Judd and Maggie Q. There’s also some great new footage, including Four and Tris after the first jump!
Actor Tony Goldwyn, who plays Tris’s dad Andrew Prior in Divergent, talked to Hollywood Crush about the movie, and his role. Check out excerpts below:
On the Prior family:
“We had a wonderful scene that I participated in which was the family together the night before the choosing ceremony,” he said. “It was very good casting of the four of us, Shailene and Ashley [Judd] and Ansel [Elgort], the family, the Priors. We just had this great chemistry together and really felt like a family [living in] the world that Neil [Burger, director] created visually of the Abnegation. We had these two really wonderful days shooting these two scenes, and I’m really excited to see how those turn out.”
On possible reappearance in sequels:
“Veronica Roth said, flatteringly, one of her biggest regrets is that she didn’t write Andrew into the other books, that she killed Andrew off, so I don’t think there’s much hope for a resurrection of the ghost of Andrew. But we’ll see.”
What do you think? Additional scenes in Insurgent or Allegiant involving flashbacks wouldn’t hurt, would it? But I personally think those kind of scenes – if added at all – would stick to Natalie, since Tris sounded a bit closer to her mom.
Earlier in the week, OLV posted an extras casting call from Summit for both male and female adults of all ethnicities aged 38 to 55 for the following roles:
People with a “rural” farm hand look
People with blunt, sharp edge haircuts
People with clean cut, sharp, polished appearance
People with severe/unique/fun hair styles – funky colors are a plus (punk rock)
People with severe/fierce/intimidating appearance – athletic or body builder a plus
People with a sweet disposition, hippie, mother earth type vibe or Bohemian look – Longer hair preferred (both men and women)
The filming for this will take place today, July 5th to July 7th. Twitter user @FearlessLove13 shared a photo of the filming locations for Catbird, the working title for Divergent. Check it out below (click to view full):
