Shailene Woodley Goes Out on a Ledge in New ‘Divergent’ Movie Still

by: on | in Movies | 5 Comments

Only one month into the filming of Divergent and we’re already seeing some big scenes from the book come to life. First there was the epic moment where Tris (played by Shailene Woodley) stands absolutely still — without flinching! — while knives are thrown at her head. (Wha-?!) Now, get a peek at one of Tris’ first tasks after deciding to leave her faction: jumping off a building.



In an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, Director Neil Burger explains the above photo: “She’s already jumped off the train and onto a seven-story building as part of the initiation rite for the Dauntless. The next thing they have to do is jump from the building and down through a courtyard that has a deep, black hole. It’s terrifying.”

Thankfully, the movie’s star has got the whole fearless thing down. The director adds, “Shailene says she’s not afraid of heights, but that she’s afraid of falling. This makes perfect sense to me. But she really did stand on that ledge — this is a real photo. She’s incredibly game and so adventurous. In a way, she’s very Dauntless.”

Also depicted, Theo James (Four) and Zoe Kravitz (Christina). During her EW interview, Shai raved about her relationship with her fellow castmates: “It’s a good group. We’re hanging out on weekends, celebrating birthdays. Everyone just wants to get to know one another. It’s rare to get a big group together and not have any conflicts. It’s really kind of amazing.”

Divergent is scheduled for release on March 21, 2014. What do you think of the latest inside look? Which character are you most excited to see come to life? Tell us in the comments below, or on our Divergent message board!
