As guests pour into San Diego for the 2013 Comic-Con, “MTV Geekend” continues to expand its live-streaming coverage of the event with a conversation with the entire cast of “Divergent,” Neil Burger’s adaptation of the acclaimed book by Veronica Roth.
On Thursday, starting at 2 p.m. on Comic-Con.MTV.com and going all weekend, MTV News’ Josh Horowitz will sit down with Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Neil Burger, Veronica Roth, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lamb, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Miles Teller, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Christian Madsen, and Amy Newbold for an in-depth chat about the upcoming film.
“Divergent” follows Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior, a young woman who lives in a society where humans are separated into groups according to their personality traits. After taking an aptitude test that qualifies her for three different groups, Tris embarks on a journey of self-discovery that forces her to choose between the path her parents chose and one she forges on her own.
In addition to speaking with the cast of “Divergent,” a variety of stars from other upcoming blockbusters already agreed to sit down and talk to MTV. From “The Wolverine,” star Hugh Jackman is set to stop by. After speaking with Horowitz during MTV’s “Sneak Peek Week,” Aubrey Plaza will sit down to talk about “The To Do List,” and maybe reveal what motivated her to stomp Will Ferrell’s stage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
From “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower will stop by to talk about the hotlyanticipated sci-fi adaptation. Clark Gregg, the unsung star of last summer’s “The Avengers,” will sit down to talk about how he survived death in order to star in “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” And longtime collaborators Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will make an appearance to introduce their latest project, “The World’s End,” to their fans.
