Theo James and the cast of “Divergent:Ascendant” were surprised to know that the movie will be canceled and will be released as a TV movie instead. Lead actress, Shailene Woodley was promoting “Snowden” at the SDCC 2016 when she was asked about the cancellation. She revealed that she knew about the possible cancellation while on a board a plane.
According to the news, the final installment of the “Divergent” series will be released on the small screens. The June 2017 release date is now unsure.
As per Chatt Sports Net, Elgort revealed that he was asked in an interview about the movie. He replied that he was not aware of it.
There was no confirmation from the producers that was revealed to the cast. He just heard of it but nothing official.
For Theo James, Shailene Woodley and Elgort, it was a surprising turnaround because they have already signed for a four-picture contract with Lionsgate. If the movie will be released on TV, some adjustments on their contracts will be done.
In view of the news that James is postponing his wedding until such time the fourth installment will be finished, he might set his wedding soon. This is good news for his fiancée, Ruth Kearney and their fans.
The couple has been engaged for quite a long time now. This could be the opportune time for them to take the marriage plunge. Besides, the James Bond role that James has been eyeing was also not awarded to him.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the cancellation rumor stemmed from the poor performance of “Divergent: Allegiant.” It earned a total of $146 million worldwide against the production budget of $110 million. The company might be taking precautionary measures not to incur bigger losses.
Will Theo James and Ruth Kearney make it to the altar this year? Watch out for the wedding news.
