Shailene Woodley Not Returning to Divergent Franchise
Lionsgate had announced last summer that due to the disappointing box office earnings of Allegiant, the third part of the Divergent series, that they would be taking to television to finish out their franchise with their fourth film, Ascendant. The TV film would also possibly lead to a television spin-off series.
Not surprisingly, this left many involved with the project with a bad taste in their mouths, including Shailene Woodley, who was fairly vocal about her distaste for the change in direction. Now, Woodley has made it more than clear what she plans to do.
"No. I'm not going to be on the television show", said Woodley while attending the premiere of her new HBO miniseries Big Little Lies.
There is not word yet from any other stars from the film about what they plan to do, but it wouldn't be surprising if Woodley wasn't the only one to drop out. There's also no word on how they will continue the series without their main star.
