'Divergent' First Look: Shailene Woodley Dodges Knives as Tris

Watch your back, Katniss Everdeen. Hollywood already is on the hunt for the next The Hunger Games, and it’s betting on Divergent, which shared its first-look photo above.
Adapted from Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA novel, Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where society is divided into five factions that determine a person’s place in life. Shailene Woodley plays the film’s hero, Tris Prior, who learns that she belongs to a sliver of the population known as Divergents … and that Divergents are about to be wiped off the face of the Earth. 
Now, with the help of some new friends, Tris has to find out what makes Divergents so special – then figure out how to protect her species. 
The movie currently is in production, with Neil Burger directing. The first image was shared via, and it might mean that a trailer is on the way. 
Woodley has been on a hot streak lately. After co-starring in The Descendants, she locked down supporting roles in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Spectacular Now
In the meantime, Divergent has circled a March 21, 2014 release date. Let’s hope this new movie does better than The Host in that calendar slot.
