The third/fourth films in the Divergent trilogy have landed Jeff Daniels on villain duties.
Daniels, best known for playing Harry Dunne in Dumb and Dumber and Will McAvoy in The Newsroom, has been lined up to play chief antagonist David in the two-parter final part. The character is head of the villainous Bureau, the manipulative organisation ruling over post-apocalyptic Chicago and clandestinely directing the lives of its citizens.
Following on from Mockingjay, Breaking Dawn and Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, for some reason (money?) the last book in the series, Allegiant, has been stretched into two films. Given complaints about the lack of pace and tons of filler in Mockingjay, it remains to be seen if there’s enough material in the book to fill two movies, but we’ll have to see.
I for one will be unhappy if there’s no Newsroom references in it.
