"I've never read a script before. I was really impressed by how closely it stuck to the general plot line of the book. It's really interesting to see how the actual actor relationships reflect the character relationships. All the young initiates have a great comrade with each other," Roth said in a statement.
"Divergent" is based in futuristic Chicago where people are tested when they are young and subsequently divided into five fractions based on their personalities and virtues.
Each represents a different virtue, and teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another.
It will release in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
