Naomi Watts is now a member of the Divergent cast, joining Shailene Woodley and Theo James in the remaining films of the young adult franchise.
Watts, who will play the mother of James’ character “Four,” will appear in Insurgent and the final installment, Allegiant, which will be released in two parts. Watts will play the leader of the Factionless, “Evelyn,” in the upcoming movies.
The Hollywood Reporter says Insurgent, which also stars Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer and Kate Winslet, has already kicked-off production in Atlanta.
The Divergent films, adapted from Veronica Roth’s young adult series of the same title, just can’t stop bringing on well-known actors — not unlike The Hunger Games before it. The final installments of the Hunger Games franchise, which stars Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, will include some footage of late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who was featured prominently in the second Hunger Games film.
