We're still recovering from the blow to the heart which was the news that the next instalment of the Divergent series won't be coming to our film screens... Lionsgate made the decision to cull the next instalment, Ascendant, from our theatres and move it straight to television. Initially, it was said it would play out as a movie for television, but then news broke that it would become a 13-episode series (which would then lead into a spin-off series).
But considering the cast's contracts specifiy they are onboard only if the project has a theatrical release, those dreams of the television production showcasing their beautiful faces were shattered.
Now, another devastating blow has been delivered, because the film's lead actor Shailene Woodley (Tris) has spoken out about whether she will be starring in the next installment.
The verdict: She is NOT interested.
"Last I heard they were trying to make it into a television show. I didn't sign up to be in a television show. Out of respect to the studio and everyone involved, they may have changed their mind and may be doing something different, but I'm not necessarily interested in doing a television show."
