Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
As I looked at the first movie still for Divergent that released earlier today, I noticed a name that looked familiar...Image Credit Jaap Buitendijk. If you happen to be a Harry Potter enthusiast then you might also recognize the name. Jaap Buitendijk did all of the stills for the last four Harry Potter films. He was also responsible for the last four Harry Potter movie posters and the Official Magazine covers.
Not a Harry Potter fan?
Then you may recognize the name Jaap Buitendijk from his work on movies like Martin Scorcese's Hugo and Oliver Stone's Alexander just to name a couple.
Summit Entertainment is giving Divergent all the right assets to be a BIG success Jaap Buitendijk is talented. Period. This is a major show of support from Lionsgate/Summit towards the Divergent Movie.
We can't help but wonder if Veronica Roth requested Jaap, but we intend to find out. Veronica has admitted to being a HUGE Harry Potter fan. Or was this just a coincidence? Either way we are excited to hear that the studio is supporting this franchise in the way that they are.
First Divergent still by Jaap Buitendijk
Here is just a small look at some of Jaap Buitendijk's work, fangirl/boy in the comments!
I wonder what the Dark Lord (@Lord_Voldemort7) thinks of this Harry Potter connection? Remember he is a Divergent fan!
