She might not be in Amazing Spider-Man 2, but Shailene Woodley will still be burning up the box office next year in Divergent. Want to see?

Everyone seems to think Woodley is going to be a breakout star, and that Divergent is the vehicle to make it happen. The second Hunger Games flick might still be on the way, but Hollywood believes that Divergent is going to be the next “big thing” — and that Woodley could be the next Jennifer Lawrence.

But instead of a bow, she’s rocking a rifle.

The film lands right in that Hunger Games vein, and is based on Veronica Roth’s young-adult novel series.

Check out the first bit of behind-the-scenes footage over here at Zap2it, showing Woodley and some others wielding guns in what appears to be a training exercise.

Divergent is set to open in 2014, with a boatload of footage expected to debut at San Diego Comic-Con next week. Do you think it can capture the Hunger Games magic?
