‘Divergent’, which will be directed by Neil Burger and star Shailene Woodley as Tris, will be shooting in Chicago as we reported a while ago. The plans currently are to be shooting in Chicago in April for around 60 days. The budget is currently a rumoured $40 million.
If this figure is correct, a $40 million budget is a huge $38 million less than ‘The Hunger Games’ had to spend.
A big Los Angeles production team, including at least 20 department heads, will move to Cinespace in Chicago for shooting. Also, according to the article, Claire Simon Casting is looking for local actors to be in the movie, so if you’re in the Chicago area watch out for opportunities!
What do you think of the budget? Too much? Too little? Sound off in the comments below.
