Divergent hits theaters in a little over a month and the sequels Insurgent and Allegiant already have release dates.

Variety is reporting that Insurgent is set to begin production in May.

Here is Variety’s report:

Lionsgate will launch production on “Insurgent,” the sequel to Shailene Woodley’s “Divergent,” in May — two months after the release of the first film.

Production company Red Wagon Entertainment made the disclosure Monday as part of its announcement that it has hired Nicki Cortese as VP of film and TV. She’s served in the same slot at Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road Pictures for the past five years.

Lionsgate announced last week that Goldsman had come on board to work on the script for “Insurgent” after Brian Duffield worked on the initial script. Variety reported in December that “Divergent” director Neil Burger would not helm “Insurgent” and that Lionsgate has yet to tap a new director.

Lionsgate will release”Divergent” on March 21, followed by “Insurgent” on March 20, 2015 and “Allegiant” on March 18, 2016.  The “Divergent” franchise — released via its Summit brand — is viewed as a key to Lionsgate’s strategy to lead in the young-adult genre, following the successes of Summit’s five “Twilight” films and Lionsgate’s first two “Hunger Games.”

Insurgent is slated to hit theaters on March 20, 2015.

Are you guys excited?
