On Tuesday, it was announced that Brian Duffield had been chosen by Summit to pen the Insurgent movie script and since he really doesn't have many screenwriting credits under his belt I'm really hoping the studio heads know what they're doing.
Summit made the announcement through the official Divergent twitter account:
Sides will be chosen, secrets will emerge, and Tris will risk everything #Insurgent twitter.com/Divergent/stat…

There is no word yet on whether or not the Insurgent film has been officially green lit, but at least with the script being written now we can see the studio is already interested in the possibility. Don't get too excited though. Divergent won't be released until March 2014 meaning we won't get Insurgent until at least spring of 2015 at the earliest.
The Divergent movie stars Shailene Woodley as Tris, Theo James as Four, and Kate Winslet as Jeanine.
Divergent is based on the book by Veronica Roth, who is finishing the third book in the trilogy entitled Allegiant. The final book hits bookstore shelves on October 22.
Stay tuned on Thursday morning when the cover of Allegiant is released. We will share it as soon as it's online.
Thanks to Hypable for the heads up!
