All Summit Entertainment needed to hear was Divergent's Thursday night ticket sales for to put its sequel AND threequel into gear. However, Divergent director Neil Burger was unavailable so Robert Schwentke will take over directing duties on both Insurgent and the third film, Allegiant. This is pretty exciting news because Schwentke directed RED about retired spies who are senior citizens - and it was one of the best action movies we've ever seen! Of course, Schwentke most recently directed the dud R.I.P.D., but it seems like we can trust him with a do-over. And, if you've ever seen The Time Traveler's Wife with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, then you know Schwentke has proven he can handle a film with heart, too.
Here's what you need to know: Insurgent is on the fast track so it will come out in one year, March 20, 2015. Allegiant is scheduled for March 18, 2016. We. Can't. Wait.
