Summit Entertainment's The Twilight Saga is coming to an end soon, their sister company Lionsgate have 'The Hunger Games' franchise, now reportedly Summit have tasked director Neil Burger (Limitless) who was previously attached to 'Uncharted: Drake's Fortune', to helm the movie adaptation of Veronica Roth's New York Times bestseller novel - 'Divergent', which is set within a fictional dystopian world.

Like 'The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen, the 'Divergent' novel has a young female adult lead in Beatrice Prior. Summit also picked up the second book 'Insurgent'.


Novel;
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

i'll call the author instead.......she said she thinks those are the kinds of names people will be given in future dystopian societies

You only have to look back to the Mad Max films, etc, to see no one rarely uses sensible names
Lol, I can imagine the think tank right now.
' okay guys, thinking caps on, what cool names will everyone have in a dystopian future ? '
6 and 1/2 hours later ......
'Katniss'

if you want ridiculous future-names you need look no further than Van Damme's Cyborg... Gibson Rickenbacker? Fender Tremelo? I'm guessing the only people to survive the apocalypse were guitar players :laugh:
Although, to be fair, Nic Cage usually has a far worse name in pretty much everything he's in, no matter what time period it's set in. And most of the Mad Max names seem like normal Aussie names to me, if their soap operas are anything to go by ;)
