The Theo James-Shailene Woodley movie Divergent: Allegiant did not end up well as expected. It fared unsatisfactorily as compared to the first two Divergent movies. Initially, the two actors were criticized as having a bland on-screen chemistry.
However, this cannot be the case since the movies before became blockbusters. Many observers and film critics cited some reasons for the flop. One possible reason was movie goers got tired of the genre. The younger ones being the hope of the world filled with evil on a futuristic setting has been seen over and over again.
Second is the female heroine defeating evil forces has been the trend of the decade. The movie did not pass critic’s expectations based on plot and visuals. The actors of the Hunger Games might have overpowered the one on the Divergent series this time.
In view of the news, Asia Stars reported that Lionsgate has decided to cancel the theatrical release of its fourth installment titled Divergent:Ascendant.
Theo James has not been fortunate lately amidst rumors that he is postponing his wedding because of his movie projects. His apprehension is that when he marries, he might not perform well in his projects. As expected, he has to attend to his wife first as they start living the married life.
With the possible cancellation of his movie with longtime screen partner Shailene Woodley, his schedule might make way for his wedding. His desire to play the James Bond 007 role will not push through also because he was turned down after his audition.
Theo James is a remarkable actor. Hopefully, he will be offered varied films in the future. Will this be the end of the well-loved partnership between him and Woodley? Possibly, they will still be together in the TV movie of Lionsgate and from there, they will know if there is still magic to their tandem.
