Neil Burger's 'Divergent,' one of the latest Young Adult novels getting a feature film adaptation, continues to beef up the casting around lead Shailene Woodley. The latest to join the ranks of the upcoming sci-fi dystopian adventure is Jai Courtney of 'A Good Day to Die Hard' and 'Spartacus' fame.

Prepare yourself to hear a whole lot about 'Divergent' this year. The film, based on the first in a planned Young Adult novel trilogy, is being pegged as the next 'Hunger Games,' and its star, Shailene Woodley, could just be the next Jennifer Lawrence. Now the film gets a little closer to becoming a reality with the filling of three crucial supporting roles.
Summit isn't wasting any time following the end of the 'Twilight' franchise. Next up is 'Divergent,' the first in a trilogy of young adult books by Veronica Roth. And Summit is eyeing director Neil Burger ('Limitless') for the job.
