Keiynan Lonsdale has been tapped to star in Robert Schwentke's Insurgent.
He joins fellow Australians Jai Courtney and Naomi Watts in the film, which is a sequel to 2014 science fiction action flick Divergent.
Based on the young adult science fiction novels by Veronica Roth, Lonsdale is cast to play Uriah, a Dauntless-born initiate in a dystopian post-apocalyptic world.
The film is currently shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, and is set of release in March 2015.
Insurgent will be followed up with two more sequels, Allegiant: Part 1 and Allegiant: Part 2, which will open in theatres on March 18, 2016 and March 24, 2017, respectively.
Both an actor and a dancer, Lonsdale is known for playing Ollie in Australian teen drama Dance Academy.
