Tony Goldwyn Discusses the Prior Family Chemistry with Hollywood Crush

Hollywood Crush recently sat down with Tony Goldwyn who discussed the great chemistry that he and his cast-mates had on set–in particular his on-screen family!

DIVERGENT

“We had a wonderful scene that I participated in which was the family together the night before the choosing ceremony,” he said. “It was very good casting of the four of us, Shailene and Ashley [Judd] and Ansel [Elgort], the family, the Priors. We just had this great chemistry together and really felt like a family [living in] the world that Neil [Burger, director] created visually of the Abnegation. We had these two really wonderful days shooting these two scenes, and I’m really excited to see how those turn out.”

HQ Photos of the Prior Family and Choosing Ceremony

Shailene Woodley/Beatrice "Tris" Prior

Shailene Woodley/Beatrice “Tris” Prior

Some brand new, high-quality photos are now available for our viewing pleasure, thanks to a tip from Page to Premiere! There are  a few shots of Shailene Woodley as Beatris (before her transformation to “Tris”), her brother and her mother and father. There is also a great shot of a few of the Dauntless initiates. From what we can see, the costumes are spot on! Dauntless youngsters are sporting bold mohawks and lots of facial piercings.

 

It looks as if our previous prediction that the shot of the Abnegation members walking to their sector with the white robes was correct, and all of the initiates at the ceremony will be wearing the ceremonial white robes.  So, what do you think about the robes? The Prior family? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Official Casting: Tony Goldwyn Cast for DIVERGENT Movie

Just announced today is actor Tony Goldwyn has been cast as Tris Prior’s father, Andrew Prior, for the Divergent movie:

TONY GOLDWYN JOINS CAST OF SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT’S FUTURISTIC ACTION ADVENTURE DIVERGENT

Santa Monica, CA – April 15, 2013 – Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF) company, announced today that Tony Goldwyn has joined the cast of the studio’s highly anticipated feature film adaptation of DIVERGENT, starring Golden Globe® nominated Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet.  The film will also feature Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, and Amy Newbold. Currently filming in Chicago, the futuristic action adventure, based on author Veronica Roth’s New York Times best seller is being directed by Neil Burger from a script by Vanessa Taylor. The original draft of the script was written by Evan Daugherty.  Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing the project via their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian.  Red Wagon’s Rachel Shane is executive producing, alongside John J. Kelly.  Summit will release the film theatrically in North America in THE HUNGER GAMES slot on Friday, March 21, 2014.

Goldwyn will portray Andrew, Tris’ father, in DIVERGENT.  He currently stars as President Fitzgerald Grant on the wildly popular ABC hit Scandal.  His feature acting credits include THE PELICAN BRIEF, KISS THE GIRLS, NIXON, THE SUBSTANCE OF FIRE, THE LAST SAMURAI and GHOST.

DIVERGENT is a thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities, Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late.

The extremely popular young adult novel Divergent was written by first time author Veronica Roth and has topped the New York Times Best Sellers list ever since being published in May of 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins Publishers.  The book was written by Roth while she was earning her undergraduate degree at Northwestern University.  She followed her first novel with the book Insurgent, which has also made its way to the #1 position on specific New York Times Best Sellers lists.  To date, book sales are now over 3 million copies for both novels combined, and both titles are HarperCollins most successful e-books ever in regards to sales.  The studio acquired the film rights to the novel in early 2011 several months before the book Divergent was published.

DIVERGENT marks another strategic foray for Summit into producing material for young adults, building on Summit and corporate parent Lionsgate’s leadership in the young-adult genre.  Summit’s TWILIGHT SAGA franchise has grossed more than $3.3 billion at the worldwide box office, and the first film of Lionsgate’s THE HUNGER GAMES franchise is the 13th highest-grossing North American release of all time.

Erik Feig, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s President of Production, and Gillian Bohrer, Lionsgate’s SVP of Production, are overseeing the project for the studio.
