Listen up, Initiates! The “Divergent” train is leaving the station, and we hope you’ll hop aboard with us for the ride. MTV News’ intrepid movie guy Josh Horowitz visited the dystopian drama’s Chicago set recently, where he chatted up stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James and author Veronica Roth. And here, today, we have your first look at that interview!
The highlights? Well, Shailene can’t seem to say enough nice things about her co-star Theo, which bodes well for the budding romance their characters share in the Veronica Roth adaptation.
“I really love Theo,” Shailene enthused, right before Theo crashed the interview. “He has a lot to offer as far as a person. He’s just a good human being. He’s very pure.”
“The chemistry is pivotal but also needs to be natural and real, and I think that’s something we stumbled upon quite easily,” Theo confirmed. “It was just there.”
Shailene and Theo aren’t the only Dauntless members represented here: Zoe Kravitz (Christina) and Miles Teller (Peter) also share some insight into the upcoming film, so be sure to click on the video above to watch our entire “Divergent” set visit!
And, really, this is just the beginning of MTV News’ love affair with “Divergent.” The cast will be sitting down with us for a can’t-miss live stream during this week’s San Diego Comic-Con! It all begins Thursday at 2 p.m. on Comic-Con.MTV.com, so don’t miss it!
