Ben Lloyd-Hughes will play teen initiate Will, Ben Lamb will play Edward, and Christian Madsen will play Al in the 2014 sci-fi pic from Summit. Shailene Woodley and Theo James star in the YA adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best seller, set in a world in which young adults are divided into factions based on their personalities. Kate Winslet, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, and Maggie Q are also aboard the pic. Neil Burger is directing from a script by Evan Daugherty and Vanessa Taylor. Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing for Red Wagon Entertainment with Pouya Shahbazian. Rachel Shane is executive producing for Red Wagon, with Erik Feig and Gillian Bohrer overseeing for Lionsgate.

Filming begins this April in Chicago on the futuristic teen action pic, which Summit has slated for March 21, 2014. Lloyd-Hughes is represented by CAA and Lamb by WME; both are managed by Lena Roklin. Madsen is repped by DBA-Fortitude and managed by Creative Partners Group.
