The Search for Four is Narrowing Down According to Reports


 The hunt for our Four is beginning to narrow down according to reports from Variety. Lucas Till, Alex Pettyfer, and Jeremy Irvine are reportedly in the running to play the coveted role of Tobias “Four” Eaton.

Summit is getting closer to finding its male lead for “Divergent” opposite Shailene Woodley, considered one of the more sought-after roles for a young actor.


Sources tell Variety that Lucas Till, Jeremy Irvine and Alex Pettyfer will test for the role later this week. Summit previously tested Till, Brenton Thwaites, Luke Bracey and Jack Reynor in November.


Veronica Roth’s young-adult novel, acquired by Summit in March 2011, is the first of a planned trilogy. The story has a “Hunger Games”-like teen-on-teen violence in a futuristic setting and follows 16-year-old Beatrice Prior, who Woodley is set to play.


Neil Burger will helm with Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher producing through their Red Wagon banner. Evan Daugherty will pen the script.

Sources also say that Lucas Till has tested more than once so it’s possible he may have an advantage there. He has previously acted in “X Men: First Class.”

Alex Pettyfer’s resume includes “I Am Number Four” and last year’s “Magic Mike.” Jeremy Irvine is best known for this roles in “Warhorse” and “Great Expectations.”

So, what do you think Initiates?
