CHICAGO — Hippie? Clean cut? Bodybuilder? The folks casting "Divergent" are looking for you.

Summit Entertainment sent out a new casting call Friday, asking for men and women of all ethnic backgrounds, ages 38 to 55, to try out to be an extra in the movie.

The film is based on Chicago author Veronica Roth's best-selling dystopian novel, in which a Chicago teen doesn't fit into her heavily divided world. It began filming some scenes at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios in spring.

The film studio said it was looking for people with a rural farm look; blunt, sharp-edged haircuts; clean cut, polished appearances; severe, funky hairstyles; intimidating appearances; or those with a hippie, mother Earth-type vibe.

Only Illinois residents are eligible for the roles, and those chosen will need to show an Illinois-issued driver's license or state ID.

Those interested are asked to send an email with a recent photo, their name, age, height, weight, phone number and email address to extras4divergent@gmail.com. The subject line should be "New Submission."
