‘Allegiant’ Goes Straight to TV



Daniela Jaramillo, Press Release Editor

The cast of Allegiant states that they may not act in the final installment of the Divergent trilogy if it goes straight to TV.

This uproar originated when Shailene Woodley, the actress playing the heroine Tris, told ScreenRant she “didn’t sign up to be in a television show.” Rumors indicate the Allegiant movie adaptation will debut as a TV movie, but according to the latest news Woodley heard, the story will also inspire a TV spinoff.

Miles Teller, who is Peter in the movie, also spills he is unsure of his participation in the final TV production, whether it be a television show or movie. According to the HollywoodReporter, he is not the only one who is uneasy about the change since “it caught [the whole cast] by surprise.” Producers of Divergent’s last story also changed the name to Ascendant.

Directors initiated the change of platform from the big screen to the little screen due to the blockbuster busts they endured with the previous film of $29 million, which is far less than the previous film. Whatever happens, fans will wait to see what unfolds.
