In an earnings call for investors of Lionsgate, CEO Jon Feltheimer expressed the possibility of Four: A Divergent Collection being adapted into its own film.
“I’m going to talk a lot this morning about Divergent, because all the signs are pointing to it growing into another big young adult franchise like Twilight and The Hunger Games,” said Feltheimer at the beginning of the call. “[N]ot unlike the evolution of the Harry Potter franchise, author Veronica Roth continues to build out the Divergent universe with new material. Her latest book, Four: A Divergent Collection, explores the back story of the charismatic male lead, played by Theo James, and climbed to #1 on the bestseller list last week.”
Feltheimer is then asked the following question: “I think you mentioned a book Four, coming out or came out on the Divergent series. Is there opportunities, I guess, around for these franchises, with Four being an example, to do other films that haven’t been announced yet?”
The reply? “I think as I’ve said before, we certainly hope so.”
The full transcript of the call can be read here.
It’s certainly an interesting idea. However, there is the issue of Theo James being able to portray a younger Four years into the future. We’re still a long ways away from the second half of ‘Allegiant’.
