With Insurgent set to start filming at the end of this month, we know that we’re in store for some casting news–and so it begins! Variety is reporting that Octavia Spencer has joined the cast of Insurgent!
Spencer will play Johanna, the leader of the Amity faction, which is the faction in the dystopian society that is said to be dedicated to peace and trust. She will star opposite Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet. The film will be directed by Robert Schwentke from a screenplay by Brian Duffield and Akiva Goldsman.
You may recognize Octavia from her Oscar-winning role as Minny in “The Help.” This is so exciting! Welcome to the Divergent World Octavia!
We think this is the start of some very eventful weeks to come! Which role do you think we’ll hear about next?
