Lionsgate announced Friday that the Divergent trilogy’s final book, Allegiant, will be split into two films — following the franchise trend spurred by the Harry Potter films and aped by both the Twilight movies and the Hunger Games series. Allegiant — Part 1 will be released March 18, 2016, while Allegiant — Part 2 will arrive on March 24, 2017. The studio has not announced where they plan to split the novel’s story.
“Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger in a statement. “The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn films and about which we’re tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise.”
So far, Divergent has made $117 million at the domestic box office in its first three weeks of release. Up next will be the second film of the saga, Insurgent (directed by Robert Schwentke), which will hit theaters March 20, 2015.
In case you somehow haven’t already seen or heard, The Fault in Our Stars — starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort — is heading to theaters this summer on June 6.

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort play brother and sister in the dystopian setting the recent blockbuster Divergent, where humanity grapples with categorization as a means of societal control. But shortly after filming the film, which is based on a novel by Veronica Roth, Woodley and Elgort had to shift their onscreen relationship for another book adaptation. In The Fault In Our Stars, the duo play teenage love interests who are both dealing with impending doom of another kind — cancer.
The film, out June 6, is based on a popular young adult novel by John Green; it follows a 16-year-old cancer patient named Hazel Grace Lancaster who encounters a compelling young man named Augustus Waters in a support group. For Woodley, there were a lot of reasons to accept the role of Hazel, whose witty narration in the novel carries over into the film in voiceover form.
“There were so many things!” Woodley tells TIME about what drew her to Hazel. “The fact that Hazel at such a young age realizes that all of this is fleeting and that none of it matters. That it doesn’t matter how big of a mark you leave on the world or how many great things you do, or if you change the world or if you’re Martin Luther King Jr. or Cleopatra or homeboy down the street. Eventually it’s all going to end, and oblivion is inevitable. So you might as well enjoy every moment and live every moment in a present state of mind. The fact that she understood that at such a young age was so powerful to me.”
The casting for The Fault In Our Stars was announced midway through filming Divergent, but both actors felt able to aptly separate the two films. Elgort, who was cast as Augustus in Fault, plays Caleb Prior in Divergent, the brother of Woodley’s character Beatrice Prior. Caleb is logical and driven by his intelligence, whereas Augustus is a fun-loving teenager who manages to find a bright side to a cancer diagnosis.
“When you’re there and you’re Caleb, you have to be Caleb,” Elgort says. “I hadn’t thought about Augustus Waters yet. And then when you change characters, you change the way you look, you change the way you feel. Everything changes. You almost start to think that Shailene is two different people in the projects. You meld with your character a little bit, naturally. You start to pick up those tendencies a little bit.”
Two of young Hollywood’s hottest young actors, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort of “The Fault in Our Stars,” will join the star studded line-up of presenters handing out golden popcorn during the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, which air live on Sunday, April 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT from L.A.’s Nokia Theatre.
And before they take the stage, fans will get to see an exclusive scene from “The Fault in Our Stars” during the 2014 Movie Awards Pre-Show, starting at 8:30 p.m.
Woodley and Elgort join host Conan O’Brien and previously announced presenters Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. Academy Award-nominated actor and producer Mark Wahlberg will be honored with the MTV Generation Award, which will be presented the award by “Entourage” cast members Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon. This will mark the first public reunion for the cast ahead of their highly anticipated movie release in June 2015.

Voting for Movie of the Year will continue throughout the live broadcast of the show.
I’ve watched it at least a dozen times, and every single time, without fail, The Fault in Our Stars trailer gets me teary-eyed. It’s a trailer that’s nearly as brilliantly crafted as the John Green book on which its based. The big screen adaptation, out June 6, follows Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus, two teenagers who find friendship and love in a cancer support group. Hot off another YA franchise, Divergent, newcomer Ansel Elgort plays sarcastic and optimistic Gus. The actor spoke to Bustle about his breakout year, his second film with Shailene Woodley and his surprising hidden talent.
“Everything’s changed career wise,” the 20-year-old actor said of his emergence in Hollywood. ”But my life has stayed pretty much the same. I’ve made a little money so I got to move out of my house, I don’t live with my parents anymore, that’s nice.”
Elgort’s breakout role came in the form of 2013’s Carrie remake (ironically another film based off a popular book), where he played opposite Chloe Grace Moretz as Carrie’s prom date, Tommy Ross. His second role came in the form of Divergent, an adapted series that has the box office prowess of The Hunger Games films.
“If I didn’t like [Divergent], I’d probably lie to you and tell you that I did. But I did like it a lot. The thing with these kinds of films is, sometimes — I won’t name any examples — but movie studios try to get away with using the fact that it’s a great successful story, so they’ll make a shitty movie and know people will still go. But they did not do that. This is a really good, quality movie. All of the actors were great, there wasn’t a false performance to be seen,” Elgort said.
Jumping from one successful flick to the next, Elgort’s third film is The Fault in Our Stars. “…And a movie with Jason Reitman, the director from Juno and Up in the Air,” Elgort is quick to remind me. He’s referrencing Men, Women & Children, a film thats ambiguous IMDB page simply says: “A look at the sexual frustrations that young teenagers and adults face in today’s world.”
