Todd Lieberman, The producer of ‘Insurgent’ sat down with Collider and among other stuff he discussed ‘Allegiant’.
‘Allegiant’ will begin filming on May 18th,
I don’t want to promise too much, but I can say that the things that we’ve talked about have been very, very cool. There’s going to be some really mind-blowing visuals. Those who have read the book know where it goes. It goes into a whole different world, and we’re really excited to explore that.
He also talked about the controversial ending of the book, as readers of the book know……SPOILERS!!
Tris dies at the end,
We’re taking Allegiant and splitting it into two, so the first part of it won’t go that far. But yeah, the book had that ending, and there was certainly controversy over it. Personally, I feel that it’s an important arc for that character. But we haven’t actually discussed too much of that yet…they’re beloved characters. I can see how that would cause a controversy. Sometimes you have to make bold choices, creatively. I’m always in favor of that.
What do you think? Should the producers change the ending? Would you still go watch the movie if they did?
