Video: Dumb And Dumber Star Joins The Divergent Caste
In May, the shooting of the third film of the fantastic franchise "Divergent" will start.
The main characters are still played by Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Naomi Watts, etc. Now the Alligent caste will be joined by the star of Dumb and Dumber Jeff Daniels. It is reported that Daniels will play David, the head of the Bureau of Genetic Defense. It was this organization that was at the origins of the division of society into factions, with none of which Tris had anything in common.
In the third film, the heroes will have to find out what is hidden behind the wall behind which they spent their entire adult life. Tris and Tobias, along with a group of friends, want to find out the truth and find freedom. But they go straight to the Bureau of Genetic Defense. It turns out that there has been a genetic war for purity in the past. As a result, the world was divided into "genetically pure" and "genetically damaged" individuals. And scientists turned into possessed monsters and began to experiment: create artificial settlements and introduce their agents into them. How will the rebel group cope with the new challenge? …
Alligent: Part 1 will premiere in March next year.
Note that the film adaptation of Veronica Roth's books is inferior in gross to other popular studio franchises Lionsgate - "Twilight" and "Hunger Games". Divergent grossed nearly $ 264 million worldwide, Insurgent $ 271 million.
However, the studio continues to invest substantial sums in the Divergent series (the budget of the first two films is almost 200 million), anticipating interest in the final series.
