Naomi Watts joins Divergent sequels Insurgent and Allegiant

Jun. 4, 2014by: Graham McMorrow

The talented and sexy Oscar-nominated Naomi Watts has joined the DIVERGENT sequel INSURGENT, and the now two-part ALLEGIANT finale. She will play Evelyn, leader of the Factionless. She joins other Oscar winning actresses already in the series, Octavia Spencer and Kate Winslet.

You'll have to excuse my ignorance when it comes to the world of DIVERGENT, I didn’t read the books or see the movie. It sounds like a piece of old toss to me but regarding this news, I'm told Evelyn is a crucial role. So if you’re a fan of the books and first movie, then I’m sure that means something to you and I wish you all the luck in the world with that.

Watts is a great actress, and hearing that her and my favorite actress Kate Winslet are going to be in the same movie is all sorts of right with me. Let the games begin! Nope, wrong movie.

RED director Robert Schwentke is set to helm the second installment that will hit thearters March 20, 2015.

I couldn't make heads or tails of the plot from the trailers or the synopsis, so of course I didn't go see it. I might check it out in redbox one day. I gotta say, the trend of splitting the last movie into 2 movies, is getting pretty old. Nice pic of Watts btw!

Took a date to see it and while it wasn't as mind numbingly bad as twilight or mortal instruments I still wouldn't call it a great movie. 4 or 5 out of 10

I must've missed when this site stopped celebrating everything movie news and started blatantly judging it. I'm a fan of Watts, and not a Divergent, but I am also open minded and as an almost decade-long reader, forgive me for breaking the rules - but this article was poorly handed.

What is so bad about the article? If did he edit it already? There was a situation where a conversation went out between 3 ppl, one if them the writer of the article, and I called him out for acting like a dick, and he erased the entire thing. I'm assuming that's what happened here? What did he say?

Dude, ease up

I've never read these books, or seen the movies but that "news story" is pretty rude to people who have, and enjoy them. And worse, it encourages the kind of trolling activity in the comments section that gets out of hand enough that JoBlo has to come out of the woodwork and personally chide the site's visitors for twice a year. I think you could have broken the news without being condescending to people who would be happy to read it.
