'Divergent' Final Film 'Ascendant' Heads To TV Instead of Big Screen
The final film of the Divergent film series, Ascendant, isn’t looking to make a big splash on the movie screen.
Instead, according to Variety, the film will wrap up with a television movie and a spinoff series.
Lionsgate plans 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.”
Shooting on Ascendant was planned for this summer in Atlanta, however, the box office performance of Allegiant has caused the studio to re-think the decision.
For the television wrap up, “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.”
