Octavia Spencer Joins 'Insurgent' as Amity Leader Johanna

Octavia Spencer has joining the cast of Insurgent, the upcoming sequel to the hit movie Divergent!

The 43-year-old Oscar-winning actress will be playing the role of Johanna, the leader of the Amity faction. Looks like the studio is getting Oscar winners to play the faction leaders as Kate Winslet is reprising her role as Jeanine, the Erudite leader.

Here is the sequel’s synopsis (via TheWrap): Tris’ stakes are risen (Shailene Woodley) as she searches for allies and answers in the dystopian ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris and Four (Theo James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.

Insurgent will hit theaters on March 20, 2015!
