‘Insurgent’ Director Robert Schwentke to Direct ‘Allegiant Part 1′
director, Robert Schwentke, has signed on to direct The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Part 1
. As of right now, there is no word if he’ll direct Part 2 in the series.
It’s common for YA film adaptions to have the same director helm both parts of the final movies. Bill Condon directed both The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1 and 2
, as is Francis Lawrence directing both The Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 1 and 2
. Interestingly enough, Lawrence took over The Hunger Games
movies after replacing Gary Ross (The Hunger Games
director) when he directed Catching Fire
. Same for Schwentke, as he took over Insurgent
from Neil Burger.
