The director for the final installment of The Divergent Series has been announced. It will be directed by Lee Toland Krieger, who directed Age of Adeline.
Ascendant was set to be directed by Robert Schwentke until he dropped out in January. Robert had said that he was backing out of Ascendant because he needed a break after doing the two films back to back and wanted to spend more time with his family in L.A. rather than go back to Atlanta.
Production on the film is due to start this summer in Atlanta.
Ascendant’s current release date is June 9, 2017.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news.
