[Movies] Lionsgate To Split Allegiant Into Two Films
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.11.2014

Coming Soon reports that Lionsgate will produce and release Allegiant as two separate movies. The films will be based on the third book in Veronica Roth's trilogy and will star Shailene Woodley and Theo James. This means that the company will release four films based on three books, similar to The Hunger Games franchise. Insurgent arrives on March 20, 2015, followed by Allegiant Part 1 (March 18, 2016) and Allegiant Part 2 (March 24, 2017).

The first film, Divergent has already earned $117 million domestically in its first three weeks of release. It will be released this weekend in France, Germany, Russia, Australia, Scandinavia and other major territories. Book sales of the series are close to twenty million in sales of both the three-book box set and three-book e-bundle are up 55% in the past week. The books were ranked in the top three on USA Today's best seller list for 2013.

Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said: "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. 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."

Here's a synopsis: After the cataclysmic events in Insurgent, Tris and Four enter a dangerous new world in Allegiant -- Parts 1 & 2 that they no longer recognize. As new truths are revealed about the past and future, Tris must face impossible choices about courage, allegiance and love to protect the people closest to her.

Lionsgate's The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises have brought in $5 billion combined worldwide. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the tenth highest-grossing film of all time. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Parts 1 & 2 will be released on November 21 and November 20, 2015 respectively.
