Shailene Woodley to star in real-life drama Adrift

Shailene Woodley has been cast to star in real-life drama Adrift.

The Divergent actress will portray sailor Tami Oldham, who had to survive 41 days at sea after a hurricane wrecked her plans to travel the world with her fiance.


Oldham was knocked unconscious during the storm and awoke in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in a damaged boat to find her fiance, Richard Sharp, and the lifeboat missing.


She eventually managed to get to the shores of Hawaii.


The movie, directed by Baltasar Kormakur, is slated for release next year (17).
