Jai Courtney who plays the mean Eric in the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent talked with the Australian Herald Sun to talk Neil Burger and Divergent.
While here last March, Courtney was pretty tight-lipped about the “fresh news” and what role he would play in the “exciting” project. He did say that the director was one reason he signed on.
“Neil Burger’s done some wonderful visual stuff. He had this film Limitlessthat came out a couple of years ago with Bradley Cooper and I really liked what he did with that. He also directed The Illusionist which was another cool film. I really like his approach with this.
“The world is something I’ve not explored. I think it’s a really cool story and has potential to be something really wonderful.”
“The books are wonderful and it’s got some wonderful other people involved, so it’s exciting,” Courtney said.
Are you excited to see Jai Courtney as Eric in Divergent? The film hits theaters on March 21st.
