DIVERGENT Director Neil Burger Will Not Return for the Sequel INSURGENT

Posted on December 17, 2013 at 6:00 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Divergent opens March 21, 2014 and Summit has already scheduled the sequel Insurgent for March 2015, followed by the third movie Allegiant in March 2016.  The studio clearly hopes for big things over the next three years from the adaptation of Veronica Roth‘s dystopian sci-fi series, set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities..  Director Neil Burger (Limitless) is in post-production on Divergent, but Variety reports he will not return to direct Insurgent.  The report does not specify why Burger will not return, but the tight schedule may be a culprit.  Insurgent will begin production in the spring to make the March 20, 2015 release date.

Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Tony Goldwyn, Ashley Judd, and Kate Winslet star.
