Miles Teller Isn’t So Sure About This ‘Divergent’ TV Movie Thing

by Britt Hayes August 4, 2016 @ 4:41 PM
Lionsgate recently announced that the final film in the Divergent series will skip theaters entirely and head straight to television, with additional plans to launch a spinoff series. Although the franchise has suffered diminishing returns at the box office, news of the Ascendant TV movie and (possible) spinoff was still a bit surprising to everyone — including Miles Teller, who seems somewhat hesitant about this whole television business.

Final ‘Divergent’ Film to Become a TV Movie, Launch a New Spinoff Series

by Britt Hayes July 20, 2016 @ 5:15 PM
The first Divergent movie did OK in theaters, owing much of its success to the YA post-apocalyptic craze and the popularity of stars Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller. But the subsequent installments saw diminishing returns, with the third film, Allegiant, taking a major hit at the box office — possibly because audiences had YA fatigue, or maybe because the story just wasn’t that compelling. Whatever the case may be, the final Divergent film will skip past theaters and head direct-to-television, with plans to launch a spinoff series.

There are only three Divergent books. But there’s going to be four movies. Because when you take a popular series of young-adult novels and turn them into a series of movies, you always split the last one. That’s just the rule. If you don’t, they kick you out of Hollywood.

‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ Trailer: Go Beyond the Wall

The Divergent series has never reached the culture-saturating heights of the Hunger Games movies, but it’s done well for itself. Divergent and its awkwardly titled sequel, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, left fans satisfied and made their fare share of cash at the box office. The first trailer for The Divergent Series: Allegiant (ugh, that title) is preaching to the choir. No one put off by the first two films will be won over by this footage and no one who skipped the first two will be able to follow any of this, but this movie doesn’t need your approval. It just needs the approval of the faithful.

Myst was definitely a thing that human people played upon a time, right? There was an island, or something, and a lot of clicking involved. Well, now it’s going to be a TV series for Hulu, brought to you by the minds behind The Amazing Spider-Man and Divergent. Congratulations, eight people interested in this!

‘Allegiant’ Adds Jeff Daniels in Crucial Role to Close Out the ‘Divergent’ Saga

Much like the casting of Philip Seymour Hoffman in a key role for the final installments of The Hunger Games franchise, Lionsgate has cast another older, distinguished actor to play a crucial part in the final parts of the Divergent series. Jeff Daniels has joined the cast of Allegiant – Part 1 and 2 in a fairly important role.

Final ‘Insurgent’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Sets the World Free

The Divergent Series: Insurgent (which the real, actual title of this film) has been bombarding us with trailers for so long that it feels like the movie should have come out by now. But alas, the next chapter in this young adult dystopian romantic action series is still a month away and Summit has released the final Insurgent trailer. To their credit, this is easily the most effective preview they’ve cut so far, even if it seems like it’s in an alien language to the people who skipped Divergent.

‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Defies Reality

If you loved ‘Divergent’ and are already totally on board with the cinematic adaptations of Veronica Roth’s young adult science fiction novels, then the trailer for the awkwardly titled ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ is probably going to prove exciting. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, prepare for 144 seconds that might as well be in a foreign language.
