Many movie-goers were surprised last year when "Catching Fire," the highly anticipated sequel to "The Hunger Games," was a lot more confident and character-driven than its predecessor under the new direction of Francis Lawrence.
Luckily, Woodley was in our studios to talk about her currently-in-theaters movie "White Bird In A Blizzard," and her answer revealed that yes, "Insurgent" will be drastically different than "Divergent;" but not in the way you might expect.
"It's definitely going to have a lot more action, and I think it's more character-driven in a lot of ways," Woodley said.
Woodley also explained that having Schwentke around made developing her character, Tris, even easier the second time around.
"Robert is definitely an actors' director," Woodley said. "He was very keen on hearing our opinions about our characters, and collaborating on everything -- whether it be the way that she looked, her hair, her makeup, her wardrobe. [We were] collaborating on dialogue, if it felt grounded and truthful. Not only to him, but to me as well.
"If something felt off-cantor, he would stop production, we would walk away and figure it out and go back, which is something that doesn't always happen on big movies. I really felt like he was protecting the sacredness of the story, within the world of big-budget film."
"The Divergent Series: Insurgent" hits theaters on March 20, 2015.
