More Bad News for Divergent Fans

The first bit of bad news came when it was announced that the final part of the movie series would not receive a theatrical release. Allegiant performed poorly, and while they wanted to finish the series out, it no longer made sense to release them in theaters. Miles Teller has now come forward to say that he doesn’t know if he will finish out his role in the movies. Apparently the choice to cut theatrical releases was not something discussed with many of the people involved, and it has changed their opinions on continuing on. Teller was disappointed by the change, and while he has not actually decided he did imply that he didn’t know if he was even still contracted for the movies (since it specifically highlights theatrical releases in his contract). He doesn’t feel very motivated to continue with the series, especially with the lack of communication from the studio. Even Shailene Woodley was shocked by the news, she read it on the internet before anyone contacted her. While I can understand deciding against theatrical releases for the end of the series, it’s a little shocking to find out that no one seems to have been told about this. The series is already suffering, this mismanagement on the part of those in charge might do more damage. Actors leaving before it’s over could be the final nail in the coffin for the series. It was disappointing to see how poorly the third movie did in comparison to the other two, but this doesn’t seem like the best possible solution. We will bring you more news as it becomes available.
