Summit Entertainment announced today that the final book of the Divergent series will be adapted into two films.

The news comes after a lot of speculation as to whether or not they would choose to split Allegiant into two films, as well as the recent success of ‘Divergent’ in the box office.  Summit has also produced the Twilight and Hunger Games films, both of which have and will be ending their final movies in two parts.

This is what Lionsgate Co-Chairman Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger said in a statement this morning:

Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in Allegiant, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies.  The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn films and about which we’re tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise.

‘Allegiant: Part 1’ will be released March 18, 2016.  Part two will follow on March 24, 2017.
