Shots Around the Sloop: Divergent

We've had a lot of questions about what's going on at the southwest corner of Wells and Harrison over the past couple of weeks.  It even garnered some good conversation on the message board.

In case you didn't know, a new movie is shooting in the lot called Divergent.  A reader recently sent us this pic of the set build out:

Here is a recent quick blurb we found when googling the movie (via Entertainment Weekly):
Divergent, the highly anticipated adaptation of the first book in Veronica Roth’s best-selling YA series, only recently began filming on location in Chicago. But Shailene Woodley, who stars as heroine Beatrice “Tris” Prior, tells EW that the younger members of the Neil Burger-directed movie — which includes Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Theo James and ZoĆ« Kravitz — have already clicked. “It’s a good group,” she says. “We’re hanging out on weekends, celebrating birthdays. Everyone just wants to get to know one another. It’s rare to get a big group together and not have any conflicts. It’s really kind of amazing.” 
Divergent takes place in a dystopian future where society is divided up into five factions.
