Watts at Cannes Film Festival, 2014

Naomi Watts will star as Evelyn, the leader of the Factionless, in the upcoming installments of this young adults’ film franchise. Evelyn (SPOILER ALERT) is the mother of Four (Theo James) who was presumed dead in the previous movie and to Four himself. She’ll appear in the second installment of the series Insurgent as well as the final chapter, Allegiant, which will be released in two parts.

Evelyn is the toughened leader of the Factionless, having escaped a life with the abusive Marcus (Ray Stevenson), a leader of the Abnegation faction. If the movie follows the book series by Veronica Roth closely, the relationships thi

s character will create should be deep and full of tension. It’ll also be interesting for fans to see how Four reacts upon learning his mother is not actually dead.

The Hollywood Reporter says Insurgent, which also stars Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and now Octavia Spencer, has already kicked-off production in Atlanta, eager to make more movies for the fans.
