Super exciting news, initiates! The second film of the Divergent franchise, Insurgent, has begun filming. The actors have been spotted in Atlanta, Georgia (where they are mainly shooting the sequel, instead of actually on location in Chicago) and Ansel Elgort, who plays Caleb Prior in the films, just revealed that he is now shooting in a secret location. We’ll keep you posted with set photos and other cool tidbits as we receive them!
The films are based on the bestselling series by Veronica Roth (Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant – the final book will be split into two movies), and stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James in the central roles of Tris Prior and Tobias Eaton. The first movie passed the $200 million mark at the box office in April.
I am currently somewhere shooting #Insurgent without great Internet, however I will do my best to do a 500k live stream
