Kate Winslet in Talks to Join Divergent Movie

Academy Award winning actress Kate Winslet looks set to join the Divergent cast.

Twitter was abuzz with excitement when the official Summit Entertainment twitter account announced that Winslet had been cast, but the tweet was deleted a short time later. Looks like the deal isn't quite yet sealed. Hopefully we'll get an update soon! In other news, it seems the studio is now looking at older guys for the role of Four. We're happy they're so dedicated in finding the right guy, and certainly wont be complaining about about a more mature actor.

Variety reports: Though Summit and Neil Burger’s “Divergent” is still on the lookout for its male lead to pair with Shailene Woodley, it may have found a major co-star for her with Kate Winslet in talks to join the movie.
 It is unknown what part Winslet would play in the film.
Though Winslet is no stranger to starring in a big-budget-tentpole, the film would mark her first opportunity at a possible franchise.

Summit is also still trying to find its male lead to pair with Woodley. The studio recently tested Lucas Till, Alex Pettyfer and Jeremy Irvine, but sources say the shingle may go older after not finding its guy with the latest readings.

The 2 characters we think Kate is most likely up for - Jeanine Matthews or Natalie Prior.
