Divergent duo Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller have joined a new political satire titled The Fence.

Icelandic director Grímur Hákonarson is behind this film, and the story was transformed into a feature screenplay by writer Shane Danielsen.

The movie also stars Oscar winner and MCU regular William Hurt, and filming is due to get started in March 2021.

As for what they'll be doing on screen, The Fence sees "two liberal newlyweds increasingly at odds with their ultra-conservative ex-marine neighbour over a nine-foot-tall fence that he insists on building to keep his home safe from potential terrorists," (via Deadline).

Hmmm... sounds like it could be along the lines of Take Shelter meets Duplex...

Elsewhere, Woodley recently spoke about having a physical illness while making the Divergent series, describing her twenties as "a little bit like being in a washing machine, where you're being thrown all over the place".

"While I was doing the Divergent movies and working hard, I also was struggling with a deeply personal, very scary physical situation," she recalled.

"Because of that, I said no to a lot of opportunities because I needed to get better, and those jobs ended up going to peers of mine who I love.

"I was in a place where I had no choice but to just surrender and let go of my career, and it brought out this negative voice in my mind that kept spinning for years and years afterward."
