Maggie Q says Divergent looks at heavy futuristic themes as well as being an emotional journey.

Maggie Q will be back on the big screen at the beginning of April, when she takes on the role of Tori in the adaptation of Divergent; the first of Veronica Roth's novels to get a movie makeover.

Speaking to ScreenRant, the actress said: "Yeah, we have a fascination with the future. I think we always have. The future now as it stands in 2014 is dystopian or post-apocalyptic or whatever it is they decide it’s going to be in that film in particular.

"This one I think deals with heavier themes with what the future looks like. It deals with heavier themes with what the government may look like, about the semblance of control, how are they going to go about it and what their limitation is.

"And outside of those big themes, really I feel we are just watching an emotional journey about this young girl who is becoming a woman and love and loss and family.

"There’s a theme for everyone and that’s why I love this film. It’s not a kid’s film. It’s not a young adult film. It’s just a film."

Divergent will be the first big screen outing for Maggie Q since the release of Priest back in 2011. She has been focusing on her TV work with series Nikita.

She joins an all star cast as Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Ashley Judd and Jai Courtney are all also on board.

Divergent is released 4th April.
