‘Divergent: Allegiant’ Movie Update: Theo James Says There Won’t Be Any Changes
“Divergent: Allegiant,” as we all know by now, will have a tragic ending. With fans signing up to petition some changes in the ending of the “Divergent” trilogy, Theo James and Veronica Roth insisted that there will not be any changes made to the ending of “Allegiant.” Read on to learn more about this scoop.
James who plays Four in the “Divergent” series recently opened up and talked about the upcoming sequel, “Divergent: Allegiant.” Speaking to Collider, James revealed that while “Insurgent” had undergone many changes, “Allegiant” will not have as many changes as its prequel.
“Not huge [changes], no. I think they were able to consolidate with the third movie and kind of consolidate all the key elements,” James revealed in the Collider interview.
The 30-year-old actor also said that they will have more time to focus on the movie this time. It was especially because the last part of the trilogy will be shown in two parts.
“There will be more stuff because we have more time to tell the story,” he added.
Hmm, interesting. Does that mean we will get to see perhaps a bit more intimate scenes between Woodley’s character, Tris and Four? Or maybe we will see more conflict between them?
The outlet also noted James’ thoughts on one of the major changes in the film, the introduction of the box. It can only be unlocked by someone who is 100 percent Divergent in the “Insurgent” movie. James said that “Allegiant” is about the “hierarchy of people who seem to be genetically pure.” It means that Tris will go from the lowest to the highest of the rung.
According to Vulture, author Veronica Roth also aired her side when a petition to change the tragic ending of “Allegiant” surfaced online.
“I wrote ‘Allegiant’ that way because I thought that was the way it needed to be told, and so I feel very strongly about it,” revealed Roth to Vulture.
When asked if she would be willing to have two endings to “Allegiant,” Roth expressed that she has never seen a movie with two endings and she does not think this “’Choose Your Own Story’ style” will be used.
“Divergent: Allegiant – Part 1” is set to hit the theaters on March 18, 2016. Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates.
