Shailene Woodley and Theo James characters Tris and Four will continue their love story with Insurgent, sequel to the first arc of the Trilogy by Veronica Roth titled Divergent. Inside reports and rumors have been released from their Atlanta set shortly after Divergent was shown in cinemas.

According to a source, there was filming for a certain scene for the upcoming sequel, and it took place at Atlanta, Georgia in a pasture in Coweta near the Fulton County. The scene didn't take long hours to shoot, in fact it only took them a couple of hours. Pasture owner Meredith Wilson told reporters that the crew was filming train cars from the train in the movie that travels amongst the various factions where the Divergents jump off everytime they want to travel to the Dauntless.

"They just wanted some landscaping for the train to go by," said the homeowner. "There will be computer graphics added to the scene," she added. The train cars, which was described as vehicles that "almost looked like cages," were on a trailer.

The young-adult novel where the Divergent trilogy is based on is written by Veronica Roth. The story focuses on the division of a society based on their instinctive selves. People are identified depending on where they belong in the given five social divisions called "factions". A test determining a member of society's faction where one belongs to is conducted at the age of 16. The different factions are namely: Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (honest), Dauntless (brave), or Erudite (intelligent). The person who has been tested can choose to live with his or her family regardless if they belong in the same faction or not, or choose to be with the faction he or she is determined to belong in. If they choose to go with the faction they belong in, there will be certain initiation rites, and should they fail the test, they could become factionless, which means having to live in poverty. Tris and Four are both called Divergent, which is what they call the people who shows aptitude for three factions, meaning they don't fall in under one faction only.

As Tris and Four fell for each other in the first installment for the trilogy, the sequel will portray both characters falling into more dangerous territories in which they have to make hard decisions while in the midst of conflict and an impending war.

Insurgent is anticipated to be released on March 20, 2015.
