‘Ascendant’ to become TV Movie and Spinoff Series! #Divergent

Divergent Series: Allegiant

Variety is exclusively reporting that the final film in the Divergent series will become a television film and will lead up to a TV series spinoff.

Negotiations are in the early stages, but instead of having “The Divergent Series: Ascendant” open in theaters next year, the studio wants to wrap up the film series on the small screen, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation. That would then segue into a standalone television series set in the same post-apocalyptic world.

Lionsgate’s television group will handle production. The idea is to finalize the storylines involving the current cast and to introduce a new cast, who would then continue the series on either a traditional or streaming network.

It has not been reported that any of the stars from the film series, Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Theo James or any of the others will return to reprise their roles.

‘Insurgent’ director Robert Schwentke returning to direct ‘Allegiant Part 1’!

IMG_7087.JPG
Insurgent director, Robert Schwentke will return to direct the first part of the franchise’s two-part final installment, Allegiant Part 1.

To me what this says is that Lionsgate has lots of faith in Schwentke to finish the series.

He was only confirmed for the first part but most likely he’ll direct both parts. We’ll have to wait and see for that.

Noah Oppenheim, who also scripted YA adaptation “The Maze Runner,” is adapting the first part of “Allegiant,” which, like predecessors “Harry Potter,” “Hunger Games” and “Twilight,” is being split into two films.

Allegiant Part 1 has a March 18, 2016 release date.
