The actress will portray Factionless leader Evelyn in the sequels, starting with Insurgent, which began production in Atlanta last week. After the movie wraps in September, Naomi Watts will move on to Sea of Trees, alongside Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe, which will shoot through November. The actress is currently mulling over a number of other projects to take on after Sea of Trees.
Divergent stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James return for Insurgent as Tris and Four, who are now on the run from the power-hungry Jeanine (Kate Winslet) as they unlock the mysteries of the past that could alter the future of their universe. Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q and Mekhi Phifer also reprise their roles from Divergent, alongside new Insurgent cast member Octavia Spencer.
