#Divergent Direction Neil Burger Won’t Return For #Insurgent



Sad day, Initiates. We learned from our contacts at Summit today that Neil Burger will not return to direct Insurgent.

Here’s the official statement:

“Neil Burger is a rock star and he is doing a fantastic job on Divergent.  We can’t wait for you to see the film.  But as amazing as Neil is he still cannot be in two places at once and thus needs to finish post production on Divergent while we gear up to start production on Insurgent.  So, although Neil will continue on as part of our Divergent family as an executive producer, we sadly have to find another director for the next chapter in Veronica Roth’s fantastic series.”

We’re happy to see he will still be involved in the production of the sequel, and we look forward to hearing who our next director will be. What do you think?
