Divergent Movie to be Filmed in Chicago

The novel Divergent by Veronica Roth is set on a futuristic Chicago, Illinois. In case you don't know, Miss Veronica is from Chicago. Most film adaptations do not necessarily shoot the movie on the place where the story centers. However, it might be different in the case of Divergent's movie adaptation. 

Shailene Woodley
According to The Chicago Sun Times, Divergent, to be directed by Neil Burger (Limitless), will be filmed in Chicago. The studio Cinespace and the Illinois Film Office are pushing to get the project, which according to them will bring great cash just like what happened to North Carolina after the most successful franchise "The Hunger Games" was filmed on the state.

NOTE: This is not the official location of the movie but a rumor only. 
As of this moment, the only attached actress to the movie is Shailene Woodley, who will play the lead character Beatrice "Tris" Prior. The movie will be directed by Neil Burger and the script is penned by Evan Daugherty.
