Insurgent isn't even out yet and we're still having feels from Four: A Divergent Collection, but more movie news has come out! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Allegiant: Part 1 has a writer, and it is the same one that wrote the script for The Maze Runner!
Noah Oppenheim will be adapting the third book in Veronica Roth's YA series. He is currently signed on to write the third film, Part 1, but, if all goes well, maybe he'll be writing Part 2 as well! Oppenheim has no other writing credits outside of Maze Runner but has produced a handful of shows, including NBC’s Today and Losing it with Jillian.
I guess we'll just have to see The Maze Runner before having any kind of opinion on this decision!

Ok, brace yourself, initiates. Lionsgate has just casted Four's mother, Evelyn Johnson-Eaton, and the lucky lady is....
She will be joining the cast for the final 3 movies in the series: Insurgent, Allegiant: Part 1, and Allegiant: Part 2. We love Naomi, but we're a bit confused by the decision. According to past interviews, Veronica Roth has said that "“She [Evelyn] has curly black hair and olive skin," which are two things this actress definitely does not have (wig and contacts, maybe?). Either way, congratulations to Naomi on joining the cast and for gaining such an attractive son!

Looks like Divergent will be following in the footsteps of other major franchises like The Hunger Games! According to Deadline, Lionsgate/Summit is planning on splitting the final book, Allegiant, into TWO movies. Allegiant Part 1 will have the original March 18, 2016 release date, and Part 2 will follow on March 24, 2017. Both films will be produced separately.
We're kind of excited that Allegiant will be split since it will hopefully allow the movie cast and crew to delve more deeply into everything that happens in the final book! As most, if not all, of you remember, Veronica Roth's final book in the trilogy was chock full of action and very emotional moments that left fans going crazy! The last book also took place with readers seeing things…
