The Hunger Games is so 2012.
With movie studios always on the lookout for the next big franchise, attention has recently turned to Divergent, an upcoming big screen adaption based on Veronica Roth's debut novel.
Taking place in dystopian Chicago, within a universe that has been split into five African tribes, the story is narrated by Beatrice "Tris" Prior, a 16-year old who chooses one of those tribes on her 16th birthday.
Summit Entertainment began casting the film in October, and while the role of Tris is a long way from being decided, a bevy of actors recently read for Tobias "Four" Eaton, Tris' instructor and love interest.
According to Movie Fanatic, Alex Pettyfer, Lucas Till, and Jeremy Irvine are considered the early favorites, while Luke Bracey, Brenton Thwaites, and Jack Reynor have also tested for the role.
