CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The film adaptation of the best-selling young adult book "Divergent" will start production in Chicago next month.

Summit Entertainment says Kate Winslet, Shailene Woodley and Zoe Kravitz will star in the movie. The film is based on the first book of a three-book series by Chicago author Veronica Roth. The director is Neil Burger who is known for "The Illusionist," `'The Lucky Ones" and "Limitless." Summit Entertainment is the studio responsible for the "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" franchises.

Roth wrote the futuristic action-adventure movie when she was a student at Northwestern University. It was published in May 2011. The second book, "Insurgent," came out a year later and the third book is due in October.

The movie of "Divergent" is scheduled to be released in March 2013.
