Ansel Elgort Says INSURGENT will be "Darker" than DIVERGENT at the Young Hollywood Awards

Ansel Elgort spoke about INSURGENT while attending the Young Hollywood Awards last Monday, telling us what we can expect from the sequel. Ansel says we can expect much more Caleb in this movie, that it will be darker than the first, and that siblings Caleb and Tris will "butt heads a little bit."

Zoe Kravitz on Filming INSURGENT, Reading, & Hanging Out with the Cast

DIVERGENT star Zoe Kravitz (Christina in the movie) called Nylon to chat about INSURGENT during a rare break:

You're in the middle of filming the newest Divergent movie right now [Insurgent]. How are things going?
They're great! We've been filming it in Atlanta, which is actually a really cool place to shoot. The cast is so fun--we're all good friends now, so it sort of feels like summer camp. You know?

Definitely. Do you guys hang out when you're not filming?
Yeah, we do. We actually just had a really nice girls' night at Shai's [Shailene Woodley's] house and cooked all these different meals and brought a bunch of different dishes. There are just so many rad, beautiful women in this film and I'm glad to be friends with them all.

The Divergent series is one of those types of books that are intended for teens, but that adults secretly read, too. What other YA books are you into?
[Laughing] Totally. I wasn't into Divergent beforehand, mostly because I felt a little old for them. But then obviously I read the books once I got the part, and it's totally a page-turner. I am actually rereading The Catcher in the Rye right now, because I'm on this kick where I'm rereading a lot of the books I was forced to read in high school.

How are you balancing doing movies in addition to playing shows with your band (Lolawolf)?
It's a challenge, but we make it work. The boys will come out to where I'm shooting and we'll work in the hotel room or something. It's all about the balance...we have the other two Divergent films to make, and then my goal is to do some traveling and get a tour together.

Full interview at Nylon. Get the Divergent digital HD release and Blu-Ray combo pack now, and buy the DVD August 5th!

How TRIS Will Look in INSURGENT + Shailene & Theo Talks Stunts & Character Progression

When Insurgent hits theaters in March 2015, viewers won’t be seeing the long-haired Tris (Shailene Woodley) they came to know in 2014’s Divergent, the first film in the trilogy based on Veronica Roth’s novels. Instead, the character will be rocking the blonde pixie cut Woodley sported at 2014’s San Diego Comic-Con (above right) this past weekend.

“This is what you’ll be seeing,” she told BuzzFeed while promoting the Divergent Blu-ray/DVD release. “I talked to the director [Robert Schwentke] because I didn’t want to wear a wig. I think wigs always look wiggy, especially in an action movie. We’re running so much and doing so much, I think, technically, a wig would have looked quite shitty.”
