insurgentFans of the recent hit and mostly well reviewed ‘Divergent‘ already know that there was a sequel that was greenlit. That isn’t the only good news, though, as they should be happy to hear that this sequel has already started filming in Atlanta!

‘Insurgent’ will pick up right after the events of the first film with Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) on the run from the power-hungry Erudite leader Jeanin (Kate Winslet) as they begin to uncover the secrets of their world.

New to the movie franchise will be Octavia Spencer who was added to the cast to play Amity leader Johanna. As the film continues during production, I’m sure more casting news will be released as well as a slew of promotional pictures.

Robert Schwentke (‘R.I.P.D. ‘,’Red’) will be taking over the director’s chair from Neil Burger (‘The Illusionist’, ‘Limitless’).  also have a feeling we’ll get some amazingly well put together action sequences in this one that may actually end up looking better than the first movie!

Also as a bonusn we also have a newly released synopsis for the film!

Synopsis:

INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the dystopian ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
