Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Moviepilot caught up with Veronica Roth a few days before the now released Four: A Divergent Collection(Enter our contest HERE). Veronica jumped a bit into her Four short stories, and the Upcoming Insurgent movie and future Allegiant movie. Here are just a few of the questions that were asked and you can click HERE for the rest of the interview...trust me you will want to read the rest!
They’re described as short stories, but when Stephen King writes a short story it’s hundreds of pages. How long are your short stories?
Mine are not as long as Stephen King, but I would call them novella length but maybe not even quite. They’re like a weird in between length. I think it’s called a novelette technically. They’re meaty but they’re still short.
How different was that from working with Neil Burger on preproduction?
It’s a little different. Every director has a different personality and a different means of approaching. I think Robert has a really set plan and he knows what he wants. He’s still, obviously, open to feedback and very receptive but it’s just a little different vibe. I think it helps that he’s already seen the first movie adapted, so he knows what to do with the world. Neil was building an entire world so I think it’s just a totally different experience but everything still feels friendly and open and that’s a good thing.
Did you get a look at the screenplay for Insurgent?
I did, yeah. It’s always still in flux until they shoot it because they make these little adjustments along the way. Yeah, I got to read it and give my feedback.
