Shailene Woodley is certainly finding her way in Hollywood. She went from THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER to THE DESCENDANTS to a role as the fiery redhead, Mary Jane Watson in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN sequel. Good for her, I say.

Now it looks like she is soon to land a role as the lead in the adaptation of Veronica Roth's novel, DIVERGENT.

Neil Burger will direct the film, which is being dubbed "the next HUNGER GAMES". Is that the new trend? Vampires. Werewolves. Futuristic dystopias with teens put in violent situations.

The film takes place in, "a futuristic dystopia where society is divided into factions based on human traits. A 16-year-old leaves her faction to join a rival one, but during the violent initiation she falls in love with a young man and they try to find their place in this rough world."

Evan Daugherty (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) adapted the screenplay.

I've read the book - she's a good fit for the role. Divergent fits into the future dystopia mould, but it's not really the same thing as Hunger Games. That said, you can bet your ass it'll be sold like it's the Hunger Games.

Neil Burger is a great/under-rated director. I'll see anything he makes.

I would rather futuristic dystopias with teens fighting for survival than vampires or werewolves. So, Shailene Woodley is confirmed as Mary Jane? That would be great!

Mary Jane should be better looking than Gwen Stacy. I mean, WAY better looking. Isn't MJ basically some kind of super model?
