Divergent has possibly landed an Academy Award winner.
According to the Summit Entertainment Twitter account, Kate Winslet will come on board the highly anticipated film in an unannounced role.
“It’s official! Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet has signed on for the highly anticipated film adaptation of #Divergent!,” read a Tweet that has since been deleted.
Divergent is set in a futuristic dystopia and based on a novel by the same name.
It follows Shailene Woodley's character, who hopes to break free from her homogeneous society that divides people based on human traits. She ends up leaving her faction, joining a rival group and falling for a young man named Four.
Casting for Four is underway.
