It’s official, Ascendant doesn’t have a director.
From Deadline: LionsGate will now scramble to find a director to keep the series on schedule, as it’s dated for June 9, 2017 release. Nothing sinister here. Schwentke just needed a break, after making Insurgent and Allegiant, back to back. He has a good relationship with Lionsgate.
So, we shall see. A director change isn’t always a bad thing, we know that, and he very well may not have left on any bad terms at all, but it is curious, isn’t it? I’m fairly certain we can all say we miss Neil Burger <4
Allegiant is out next month! I think we can all agree we have butterflies in our tummy about this one. If you haven’t yet, check out the trailer here, and tell us what you think!
