Divergent Faction


Leave a comment

Is getting ‘Four’ turned into a movie?

We hope so! And we’re not the only ones, Jon Feltheimer, Lionsgate’s CEO, seemed interested in the chance of bringing Four’s story to the big screen, as he said when asked:

Not only do “Divergent” fans have a trailer to look forward to, Feltheimer also teased a potential fifth film based on “Divergent” author Veronica Roth’s newly released, bestselling book “Four: A Divergent Collection.” “We certainly hope so,”Feltheimer said of a potential fifth installment, which would delve into lead male character Tobias Eaton/Four’s future in the Divergent faction hierarchy. Lions Gate previously confirmed an adaption of Roth’s third book “Allegiant” will be split into two parts with March 2016 and March 2017 release dates.

Veronica Roth talks #FOUR

Our girl Veronica Roth has been pretty busy this days, we’re just four days away from ‘Four: A Divergent Story Collection’ her last book for the ‘Divergent’ series. In her last interview for ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ she talks about how it was for her to write from Tobias’ perspective in both ‘Allegiant’ and ‘Four” and how fans have reacted to it:

“Had you always planned for Allegiant to be from both perspectives?”

“No, I really wanted to whole series to be just in Tris’ voice, actually. But when I wrote Allegiant, everything had become so much more complicated than I anticipated, so I really needed an additional perspective to take readers into the parts of the world that Tris wasn’t going to go into. And then there was this great opportunity to show Tris and Four experiencing the same thing and having different reactions, or experiencing different things and reacting to each other.”

“Did feedback from Allegiant affect these stories since that was the first time that you debuted Four’s voice?”

“A little bit. I feel like some amount of criticism helps. A lot of people commented that Four’s voice wasn’t quite distinct enough from Tris. In my mind they felt very different, but on the page that might not come across. So I thought about that a little more. And it felt a little more like it was something for the reader’s than it had before. Whether people liked it or not, the ending of Allegiant affected them emotionally. And so to have something else in the series to show them a little more of a favorite character felt good to write.”

She’s also been nominated for a ‘Teen of Queen’ an award made specially for YA and teen fiction authors! Voting ends on Monday so hurry up. You can vote here.

Lastly, to close this post about our Illinois girl, guess who made it to the Forbes Celebrity 100 list? Veronica did as the #95. If you wanna see who made it and who didn’t click here.

We wish you all a happy 4th of July! Remember to follow us on Twitter for more updates.

Veronica Roth breaks down FOUR: A DIVERGENT COLLECTION!

20140506-164639.jpg

Veronica Roth has shared more information on Four: A Divergent Collection on her Tumblr.

Four: A Divergent Collection Info!
Now that Four: A Divergent Collection is FINISHED FINISHED FINISHED, I am here to give you the rundown of what’s actually included in the pbook, because it’s just a little over 60 days until it comes out!

First, there are the four stories you expect: The Transfer, The Initiate, The Son, and The Traitor. Here is the official summary:

Two years before Beatrice Prior made her choice, the sixteen-year-old son of Abnegation’s faction leader did the same. Tobias’s transfer to Dauntless is a chance to begin again. Here, he will not be called the name his parents gave him. Here, he will not let fear turn him into a cowering child.

Newly christened “Four,” he discovers during initiation that he will succeed in Dauntless. Initiation is only the beginning, though; Four must claim his place in the Dauntless hierarchy. His decisions will affect future initiates as well as uncover secrets that could threaten his own future—and the future of the entire faction system.
Two years later, Four is poised to take action, but the course is still unclear. The first new initiate who jumps into the net might change all that. With her, the way to righting their world might become clear. With her, it might become possible to be Tobias once again.

Then, there are a few things you might not expect. Three “deleted” scenes from THE TRAITOR—scenes that I wrote while drafting the stories but had to cut for length (or because they no longer worked for the timeline). The titles are memorable lines that all happen to end with the same word. They are also all “first moments”. You know, like…

“First jumper—Tris!” – The first time he ever lays eyes on her.

“Careful, Tris.” – And the first time Tris challenges him. (But certainly not the last!)

“You look good, Tris.” – And the first time he lets his guard down.
So. There you have it—everything that will be in the short story collection, released in hardcover on July 8th, 2014, in the US! I’m excited for you guys to read!
Other info:

*The stories will also be available as separate short e-books in July.

**I’m not sure when/if the book will be released in which countries. I’ll put that information on my “foreign editions” page as it becomes available.

You can pick up Four: A Divergent Collection on July 8th. Pre-order it here.
