We’re Going To Go Ahead And Say We Called It: Shailene Woodley In Talks For Divergent Lead


Shailene Woodley In Talks To Star In Divergent

Uh, didn’t we (almost) call it? Our own Kate Spencer totally had Shailene Woodley as one of the possible actresses in our epic Divergent fantasy casting post. It’s times like these when we feel like we can see into the future. Like wizards! Like sexy, sexy wizards. So with apologies to Saorise Ronan (the fan favorite amongst you guys), we’re happy to report that the Descendants star is currently “negotiating” to play the lead in the film version of Veronica Roth‘s YA dysopia novel. Now we just got to get American Horror Story‘s Evan Peters onboard. You all saw the Asylum season premiere last night! You know you want to see him on the big screen!

In case you needed further proof Shailene’s going to be the next Jennifer Lawrence, might you remind you that girl might also be playing Spidey’s future wife Mary Jane Parker in the Amazing Spider-Man 2? Sorry Emma Stone! Oh, and we totally called Shailene’s Spider-Man 2 role too. At some point in the past. Just don’t ever go back and check to see whether we actually did or not. Just trust us. We mean, look at our cloaks, crystal balls and insanely long beards. Would we ever lead you astray?
