Age of Adaline’ helmer in talks to direct final ‘Divergent’ film

Los Angeles, March 1 (IANS) Lionsgate/Summit is in negotiations with “Age of Adaline” helmer Lee Toland Krieger to direct “The Divergent Series: Ascendant”.

Robert Schwentke, who departed the project earlier last month, directed the second instalment, “The Divergent Series: Insurgent”, and the upcoming third movie, “The Divergent Series: Allegiant”.

Now Krieger is in talks to replace him as the director, reports

It was reported that Schwentke dropped out of the fourth and final film because he needed to take a break after making two entries back to back and wanted to spend more time with his family here.

Krieger is best known for his work on “The Vicious Kind” (2008) which he wrote and directed. He also directed “Celeste and Jesse Forever” (2012) based on a script written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. His most recent credit was directing “The Age of Adaline” starring Blake Lively.

Stars like Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Zoe Kravitz, Maggie Q and more are expected to return for “The Divergent Series: Ascendant”. Its production is still on track to start this spring for a June 9, 2017 release date.
