Shailene Woodley potential casting of Tris in the Divergent series

News of casting for the Divergent trilogy hit the internet last week Neil Burger (Limitless) has secured the role of director and now it is about the cast.

Shailene Woodley (Secret Life of the American Teenager, The Decendants) is in final talks to become the main character Tris Prior. Tris is pretty emo and I think Shailene could be a good match for the character...maybe a little bit old though? Tris is supposed to be sixteen.

The author of the series, Veronica Roth, has given her blessing to the potential casting of Shailene in a recent blog post, "From the moment I heard that she was being considered, I have been nothing but enthusiastic. My priority has always been, first and foremost, that the role of Tris be well-acted, and Shailene has proven how talented she is, as anyone who has seen The Descendants can attest."

If you haven't read Divergent, I would recommend it. It is in the same vein of Hunger Games, a dystopian future. The first two books have been released and the third is supposed to come out next year.
