Theo James is not going to leave Shailene Woodley hanging as he reportedly quit “Underworld: Next Generation” to be able to focus on “Allegiant Part 1.” In an interview with Digital Spy , Theo James said that he won’t be able to join the cast of the fifth installment of the “Underworld” franchise.
“They have something in the works, but my involvement in it is…” he said.
“I think it’s going be very difficult to do that with these [Divergent] movies, and my other commitments.” According to The Hollywood Reporter , the story of “Underworld 5” will focus on Theo James’ character, the vampire David.
The film is also not “a reboot but rather an expansion of the existing universe.” Theo James and Shailene Woodley will set to start shooting for “Allegiant Part 1,” this summer.
The actor will also be seen in “The Secret Scripture” and “London Fields” with Johnny Depp.
The 30-year-old English actor clearly loves his character, Four, so much as well as her chemistry with Shailene Woodley, who plays romantic interest and main hero, Tris.
Theo James talked to the LA Times where he said of his character, “What I liked about him is he’s not Joe Hero.
He’s a quiet person in some ways.
He has a good moral objective.
He’s not just willingly accepting of any kind of leadership destiny.” Theo James also revealed agreeing with Shailene Woodley to make their characters evolve from the “Divergent” to “Insurgent.” “Sometimes the nature of a big movie, the nature of the material, the scene doesn’t have the richness that you’d want it to.
We always personally worked together to make it make sense and make it as real as possible in that hyper real world.
We talked about how there would be fractiousness and distance between [Tris and Four],” Theo James said.
