The final Divergent movie gets a new title

The final film in the Divergent movie series has been given a new title. 

Allegiant, which is the final book in Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy, was due to be split into two movies titled Allegiant: Part One and Allegiant: Part Two, but now producers have had a change of heart and the movies will now be called The Divergent Series: Allegiant and The Divergent Series: Ascendant. 

The change of title doesn't affect the films' release dates with Allegiant due in cinemas on March 18th in 2016 and Ascedant due to hit screens on March 24th in 2017. 

Robert Schwentke, who directed the most recent instalment Insurgent, is signed up to direct both movies, which feature The Fault In Our Stars leading lady Shailene Woodley in the starring role of Tris Prior, with Theo James, Naomi Watts, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet among the supporting cast. The Newsroom's Jeff Daniels has also signed up for a key role in the final two movies. 

The series is set in a dystopian future where the world is divided by factions based on virtues. Lead character Tris, who is Divergent and doesn't fit neatly into any faction, faces a constant battle to protect herself and her fellow Divergents from certain death at the hands of a tyrannical central regime.
