Divergent, based on the first book of Veronica Roth’s best-selling series, only just began shooting in Chicago late last month. But the powers-that-be must be feeling confident they have a hit on their hands since they’ve commissioned Brian Duffield to begin working on the sequel, Insurgent. Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher will also produce.
Duffield previously scripted Jane Got a Gun, directed by Gavin O’Connor, and currently filming with Joel Edgerton and Natalie Portman. Divergent will be in theaters in March, 21 2014.
