The studio also announced that Ray Stevenson and Mekhi Phifer will join a stellar young cast including Maggie Q, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, ZoŽ Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, and Amy Newbold.

The futuristic action adventure, based on author Veronica Rothís New York Times bestseller, will be directed by Neil Burger from a script by Vanessa Taylor.

Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it's too late.

Erik Feig, Lionsgate Motion Picture Groupís President of Production, and Gillian Bohrer, Lionsgateís SVP of Production, are overseeing the project for the studio. Summit will release the film theatrically in North America on Friday, March 21, 2014.
