Shailene Woodley Clarifies Interest in Fourth 'Divergent' Installment
After making headlines for saying she "didn't sign up to be in a television show," the 'Snowden' actress indicates she's still open to finishing Tris' story.
The future of the Divergent series is in flux after sources recently told The Hollywood Reporter that Lionsgate planned to make the fourth installment, Ascendant, a TV movie. Since then, some of the franchise's stars have expressed reservations about whether they want to sign on to the reconfigured fourth installment.
Star Shailene Woodley made headlines over the weekend when the actress, while promoting her role in Oliver Stone's Snowden, said she "didn't sign up to be in a television show."
On Monday's Today show, Savannah Guthrie and Willie Geist asked her to elaborate on her comments.
"So you won't do the fourth movie?" asked Geist.
"Well, I mean, if it's a movie," Woodley said, laughing. "They haven't finalized any decisions, so it's actually a moot point to talk about it now, out of respect to Lionsgate and everyone involved. I'm not exactly sure where they stand so we are kind of all in a limbo game."
Woodley said if the fourth installment of the franchise was a theatrical film she would definitely return. "I signed up to tell the whole story of Tris [the protagonist in the franchise based on Veronica Roth's novels], and I would love to be able to do that," she said. "Nothing would make me happier."
