Insurgent {Book to Movie}

It's finally here..

Do you have your tickets already?
Insurgent opens early on March 19th and I can't wait!

This will be a must see. It's rated PG-13 and is 119 minutes short. Hahah. We can't get enough of this series. We did a super fun book club on the first book Divergent and made some cool printouts, even the manifesto. You can even take an aptitude test to see which faction you would be put in. I must say I am excited they picked Naomi Watts to play Four's mother Evelyn. I love her she is a fabulous actor.

{Book Summary}

Insurgent is a 2012 science fiction young adult novel by American novelist Veronica Roth, the second book in the Divergent trilogy. As the sequel to the 2011 bestseller Divergent, it continues the story of Tris Prior and the dystopian post-apocalyptic version of Chicago. Following the events of the previous novel, a war now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. While trying to save the people that she loves, Tris faces questions of grief, forgiveness, identity, loyalty, politics, and love.


Beatrice Prior must confront her inner demons and continue her fight against a powerful alliance which threatens to tear her society apart with the help from others on her side.

Shailene Woodley {Tris}
Most well known for her roll on Divergent, but she was also in The Descendants with George Clooney and of course playing our favorite Character Hazel Grace in The Fault in Our Stars. Her upcoming projects are: Snowden, and Allegiant: Part 1 and Allegiant: Part 2.

She is in Elle Magazine the April Issue with a great interview.

..."I was born into a family of warriors, really strong people,"...

advice from her grandmother...
 "'Shai, the most important thing in life is self-love. You've gotta take care of yourself. You've got to take care of yourself, and you gotta live from your deep heart.' "

From what I read I want to pick up the new issue of Elle and read the rest. I think you will too. She sounds like an amazing person inside and out and is very grounded.


Theo James {Four}
His career really took off with the Divergent movie and boy does he fit the part of Four. He and Shailene have some steamy on screen chemistry and no wonder everyone thinks that maybe they are secretly dating, but he does have a long time girlfriend that he is with. His upcoming projects are: Franny, The Secret Scripture ( Book to Movie),  London Fields (Book to Movie), and Allegiant: Part 1 and Allegiant: Part 2.

Ansel Elgort {Caleb}
We all know Ansel from The Fault in Our Stars where he played the lovable Gus. I wonder if that was weird going from Shailene's brother on Divergent to her love interest on The Fault in Our Stars. His upcoming projects are: November Criminals, and of course the next two Divergent Movies, Allegiant: Part 1 and Allegiant: Part 2.

Naomi Watts {Evelyn}
Naomi gets to play Four's mother. This is so exciting. I love Naomi. She is most well known for her movies: King Kong, The Ring, and the amazing true story of The Impossible. She is one busy lady and has 7 upcoming projects. Some of them are: Allegiant: Part 1, Allegiant: Part 2,  The Sea of Trees (coming out this year), and Shut In.We look forward to seeing her a lot this year.

Kate Winslet {Jeanine}
Oh we all know Kate from Titanic, an epic movie and one that I actually watched twice in the movie theater when I was a teenager. Wow I think she gets more beautiful the older she gets. Other movies she is well known for are Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Revolutionary Road, and Finding Neverland. Her upcoming projects include: The Dressmaker also starring Liam Hemsworth from the Hunger Games Series, Steve Jobs, (both of which are Book to Movies that I will do a post on) and Triple 9.

Maggie Q {Tori}
I love her. She is mostly known for her role in Nikita and now in Stalker, one of my new favorite TV shows. She has a new movie coming out called A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island. That sounds interesting. Also I want to note that she is dating Dylan McDermott her costar on Stalker. I wanted them to get together on the show and now it's even better, they are a couple in real life. ;)

Director Robert Schwentke
Robert Schwentke was born in 1968 in Stuttgart, Germany. He is a director and writer, known for RED (2010), The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) and Flightplan (2005). And it looks like they really liked him as a director because he is going to direct Allegiant: Part 1

Author Veronica Roth
The Divergent Series is her only series right now. But there are smaller books like Four told from Four's perspective. I hope she starts something new because I can't wait to read what she comes up with next. Well you will just have to wait until 2017. Roth just signed a two book deal with HarperCollins. Check out the whole story.
Veronica Roth is from a Chicago suburb. She studied creative writing at Northwestern University, and wrote DIVERGENT (Katherine Tegen Books, May 2011) and INSURGENT (May 2012). The third and final book in The Divergent Trilogy, ALLEGIANT, will come out on October 22, 2013. In the meantime she will spend endless hours browsing Wikipedia in her pajamas as she eats corn flakes. (Or some other kind of bland breakfast cereal.)

Hope you have a great Weekend! Have fun at Insurgent!

I'm on the fence about this one, the trailers look so different from the book. I hope it's as good as Divergent. I wonder who wrote the screenplay?

Karen said...

This looks pretty awesome to me. Count me in!

Kellie H said...

Gidgets Bookshelf... to answer your question Veronica Roth is not involved in the Screenplays of the movies (unfortunately). I think book to movies always are more true to the book if the author is involved. There were 3 writers involved with the screenplay, Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman and
Mark Bomback.
