Shailene Woodley Reacts To 'Ascendant' Straight to TV News

Shailene Woodley has responded to the news about Ascendant heading straight to TV instead of the big screen.

The 24-year-old actress, who stars as Tris in the film franchise, spoke to Deadline about the news just after she arrived at 2016 San Diego Comic-Con.

“Honestly, I was on a plane when all that happened and I landed, and I’m like ‘Whoa, what’s going on?!’” she shared. “I need to talk and find out what the details are.”

Shailene didn’t comment on if she’d return as Tris for the TV plans at all.

If you missed it, Lionsgate announced yesterday that Ascendant, the final film, would skip the big screen for a TV movie and spinoff series.

    Its the last movie, why put it to TV? Makes no sense. Far worse movies still go to the theatres.

    Very silly series anyway. Hype. I like Shailene but I couldn’t get through the first half of the first book.

    They are taking it to tv because of how the last film did at theatres and because it will become a tv series. I cannot imagine that she would not be in the final film. I would guess that her contract commits her to all the films.

    the first book was great. the second book was ok. the third book was bulls**t. and apart from the first movie, everything on the big screen was really poorly done.

    Honestly i’m not surprised because i loved only Divergent movie who was faithful to the book, then Insurgent was cute but also far to the book and after Allegiant who was a mess who completely disappointed me…They don’t followed anymore the books and screwed up everything so i’m done with this. I love Shai. I do, but this franchise can be better. That’s a pity. I will follow her in others movies.
