Talk about an exciting day in the Divergent fandom! Not only did we learn we are getting our final Divergent Trailer, Variety is reporting that Insurgent (The MOVIE!) is to begin production in May! Two months after Divergent releases in theaters worldwide!
Production company Red Wagon Entertainment made the disclosure Monday as part of its announcement that it has hired Nicki Cortese as VP of film and TV. She’s served in the same slot at Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road Pictures for the past five years.
Lionsgate announced last week that Goldsman had come on board to work on the script for “Insurgent” after Brian Duffield worked on the initial script. Variety reported in December that “Divergent” director Neil Burger would not helm “Insurgent” and that Lionsgate has yet to tap a new director.
