In a recent interview with Australia’s The Daily Telegraph, Jai Courtney touches on playing the antagonist and director Neil Burger.
Courtney plays Eric, one of the film’s baddies, a merciless senior member of one of the five factions to which humans must belong in the future.
“I’ll be walking back down the more antagonistic path with the role I’m playing, which is always fun,” said Courtney, who also played a bad guy in the Tom Cruise flick Jack Reacher.
Divergent, another adaptation of a series of young adult novels (written by Veronica Roth), is currently shooting in Chicago. The movie opens in Australia on March 20, 2014.
While here last March, Courtney was pretty tight-lipped about the “fresh news” and what role he would play in the project. He did say that the director was one reason he signed on.
“Neil Burger’s done some wonderful visual stuff. He had this film Limitless that came out a couple of years ago with Bradley Cooper and I really liked what he did with that. He also directed The Illusionist, another cool film.
“I think Divergent it’s a really cool story and has potential to be something really wonderful.”
