Looks like it's finally official. "Divergent Series: Ascendant" the movie has been canceled.
According to producers of "Divergent," the next installment will be a TV movie instead. This decision raised uproar online from fans that have grown to love the movie series and of course followers of Theo James and Shailene Woodley who are the main cast of the series.
But there's news that Theo James and Shailene Woodley are actually to be blamed for the movie's cancellation after all. According to GameNGuide, James and Woodley have become too close for comfort. The "Fault in Our Stars" actress has developed a very personal relationship with her co-star that he and longtime sweetheart Ruth Kearney have begun to fight over the movie. It is said that his fiancé is asking him to avoid seeing Woodley and to stop doing the movie altogether.
And it looks like Ruth is getting what she wished for. Lionsgate has called off "Divergent Series: Ascendant" last week. Meanwhile, Shailene Woodley has announced her disapproval of the producer's decision and said that she won't be a part of the TV movie at all. The actress said that she and the rest of the cast have signed up for a movie and not a TV show. She even revealed that she was not officially notified about this and she only learned this news via social media. On the other hand, Theo James remained silent and from the looks of it, he may not want to be a part of a TV movie knowing his favorite co-star is not on board.
The movie's producers would have to look for a new cast to fill in James and Woodley's shoes. There are no official announcements yet regarding the new cast for the "Divergent Series: Ascendant" movie.
According to MStars News, canceling "Divergent Series: Ascendant" was a fantastic decision that favors Theo James. The actor will now have more time to focus on his wedding and finally the issue regarding him and Shailene Woodley having a relationship will be put to rest.
Before hearing of "Divergent Series: Ascendant's" cancellation, Shailene went furious because Theo won't show up for the movie anymore. The perfect pair is gone and it looks like fans would have to face the fact that their beloved "Divergent" cast won't be available anymore.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
