Book/Movie News: Divergent

I have some rather exciting news for you all. I'm sure several of you already know, but just in case, I'll give you the dish. Veronica Roth's Divergent has been picked up by Summit Entertainment. They have not only the rights to Divergent, but also the sequel Insurgent. According to Variety, Neil Burger is in talks to direct the dystopian movie. It is said to start filming in March 2013 and to be released in theaters in early 2014. Others said to be working on the film are: Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher producing with Pouya Shabazian. Evan Daugherty from Snow White and the Huntsman wrote the script.

You don't know anything about Divergent? No problem. You have plenty of time to read it! Here's the blurb:
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. 

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.

I don't know about you all, but I'm super psyched! I was just talking about this with my co-workers, how I hoped they would turn this wonderful book into a movie. And here it is! In print! I really cannot wait to see this on film. What about you? Are you excited to see the movie?
