Bill Skarsgard has signed on for the third installment of the Divergent series, ALLEGIANT. The series stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet in the dystopian future survival story based on the YA book series by Veronica Roth. The third novel has been split into two films, in the vein of the Harry Potter, Twilight and Hunger Games franchises. Jeff Daniels joined the cast this week as the leader of the bureau of genetic welfare. The character is largely responsible for the separation of societies that the world was broken into in the Divergent universe.
Known for his role in the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, Skarsgard starred in the 2010 romantic comedy Simple Simon.
