'Divergent: Insurgent' Director Returns for 'Allegiant'

'Divergent: Insurgent' Director Returns for 'Allegiant'
Lionsgate is bringing back The Divergent Series: Insurgent director Robert Schwentke to take the helm on the next installment of the lucrative Divergent franchise, The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 1. It isn't clear yet if he will also come back to direct the finale, The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 2. The filmmaker is currently in post-production on The Divergent Series: Insurgent, which is set for release on March 20, 2015, after principal photography wrapped this September in Atlanta.

Robert Schwentke took over the directing duties on The Divergent Series: Insurgent back in February, after Divergent director Neil Burger backed out due to a compressed production schedule. The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 1 is currently scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, with the final installment, The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 2, opening on March 2, 2017. It isn't known when shooting will begin on The Divergent Series: Allegiant: Part 1.

Divergent: first trailer for second movie, Insurgent

Shailene Woodley returns as Tris, in the first trailer for the second Divergent movie, Insurgent...

We quite liked Divergent. It did decent business when it was released earlier this year, and as a springboard for a series of films based on the Divergent books, it wasn't a bad place to start. Certainly director Neil Burger did the world building stuff really well, even if the last act of the movie struggled a bit.

Summit Entertainment has at least three more movies planned. In March 2015, there's Insurgent, based on the second book (penned, as the series is, by Veronica Roth). Then it's splitting the third book, Allegiant, into two movies, set for release in 2016 and 2017.

Just to confuse matters, Roth has since published a prequel book, Four, although Summit hasn't announced any plans for that yet.

Insurgent will see Shailene Woodley reprise the role of Tris, and Theo James will be back as Four.

Warning contains spoilers for series 8 up to Dark Water, and speculation on Death In Heaven.

Ex-nfl Star Takeo Spikes -- Rachel McAdams Movies ... Pumped Me Up Before Games

  • TMZ
Former NFL linebacker Takeo Spikes says he had a secret routine before he would take the field on Sundays ... he'd fire up a Rachel McAdams movie. Spikes -- who played 15 seasons in the NFL -- says McAdams flicks like "The Notebook," "Wedding Crashers" and "The Time Traveler's Wife" would get his mind right before a game. "[Her movies take] me to a place where I'm very confident in myself," Spikes said ... "It's kinda like the calm before the storm.

Divergent sequels will be painted Red

  • kidspickflicks
All Summit Entertainment needed to hear was Divergent's Thursday night ticket sales for to put its sequel And threequel into gear. However, Divergent director Neil Burger was unavailable so Robert Schwentke will take over directing duties on both Insurgent and the third film, Allegiant. This is pretty exciting news because Schwentke directed Red about retired spies who are senior citizens - and it was one of the best action movies we've ever seen! Of course, Schwentke most recently directed the dud R.I.P.D., but it seems like we can trust him with a do-over. And, if you've ever seen The Time Traveler's Wife with Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana, then you know Schwentke has proven he can handle a film with heart, too.

Here's what you need to know: Insurgent is on the fast track so it will come out in one year, March 20, 2015. Allegiant is scheduled for March 18, 2016. We.

SXSW 2014 Review: The Infinite Man Is Indie Time Travel Mayhem At Its Best

Though they have long been very popular, films that involve time travel almost always cause much consternation. Even the films that do it well become the subject of heated debate over logic (see: Looper). And when the logic is handled poorly, the result can be a horribly jumbled mess (see: The Time Traveler's Wife). So it is very encouraging to see a time travel-themed film that actually gets it right. The Infinite Man gets it right - way right. And it certainly doesn't take the easy way out either. First time feature director Hugh Sullivan wastes no time getting us into the world of his film. Right away we meet Dean (Josh McConville) and Lana (Hannah Marshall) as they arrive at a shuttered hotel...

Red and R.I.P.D. director hired for Divergent sequel

News Simon Brew 12 Feb 2014 - 06:48

Robert Schwentke is taking over from Neil Burger, and will direct the Divergent follow-up Insurgent...

Arriving in cinemas next month is Divergent, the first in a planned trilogy of films based around the books by Veronica Roth. Shailene Woodley takes the lead in the film, with Limitless helmer Neil Burger directing. But it's been known for some time that Burger wouldn't be returning to do the next film.

And now we know who is. Robert Schwentke has been hired by Summit Entertainment to direct the next chapter in the saga, Insurgent. Most recently, he was responsible for R.I.P.D., which it's fair to say wasn't one of 2013's finest movies. Prior to that, he's helmed the first Red movie, Flightplan and The Time Traveler's Wife.

On paper, he seems a weaker choice than Burger, but get the right material to the right person, and good

Schwentke To Helm "Divergent" Sequel

"Flightplan" and "Red" director Robert Schwentke has come onboard Summit Entertainment's "Divergent" franchise.

Schwentke is set to take directorial duties on "Insurgent," the second film of the proposed trilogy based on Veronica Roth's sci-fi novels. Akiva Goldsman is currently polishing the script based on a draft by Brian Duffield.

Due to the compressed production schedule of the series, which aims to release one film a year, the first film's director Neil Burger could not helm the second film due to the overlapping schedules of the films.

Schwentke also helmed "The Time Traveler's Wife" and most recently "R.I.P.D.".

The 5 Most Romantic Things Rachel McAdams Has Ever Said Onscreen
There's no denying that Rachel McAdams is the current undisputed queen of romantic comedies.

But why has this brunette beauty so successfully cemented her place in all of our hearts?

'About Time' (2013) Movie Review

As far as I'm concerned, Richard Curtis is three-for-three. In the realm of pleasant, any day watches he has a knack for the appealing. Love Actually is a personal favorite and easily Curtis' best; Pirate Radio is a bit rough around the edges, but still an enjoyable watch; and now About Time is sweet, solemn, funny, romantic and just an overall good movie. Just don't try and get caught up in the time travel mechanics, I'm still not sure I have it entirely figured out. To that time travel part of the story, Curtis tackles it head on and very matter of factly. Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) is told at the age of 21 by his father (Bill Nighy) that he can travel in time. No bullsh*tting around, go upstairs in the closet, focus on a moment in time, poof you're there. He reluctantly gives it a shot, it works,

'About Time' Review: How to Handle Time-Travel Romance

Every time travel movie comes with a specific set of rules and regulations for its would-be time travelers to follow. Usually these can be quantified in numbers, like 88 (Mph) or 1.21 (gigawatts), but in the upcoming "About Time," the latest romantic comedy from British writer/director Richard Curtis ("Notting Hill," "Love Actually"), the magic number is relatively simple: 21. As in years, which is when Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers that the ability to travel through time runs in his family.

Still, time travel movies typically involve a fair bit of mental gymnastics to make sense of all the paradoxes and metaphysics, which was summed up perfectly by Bruce Willis in "Looper": "If we start talking about it then we're going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws." Combine that with romantic comedy, another genre with its own strict rules, and things can get even more confusing.

Weekend Movies: 'Dallas Buyers Club,' 'Ender's Game,' 'Last Vegas,' & More (Video)

This weekend, Matthew McConaughey portrays a man diagnosed with HIV in "Dallas Buyers Club," Asa Butterfield battles an alien race in "Ender's Game," four good ol' boys throw a bachelor party in "Last Vegas," a man travels through time in "About Time," and two turkeys try to take their kind off the holiday menu in the animated "Free Birds."

Based on a true story, "Dallas Buyers Club" tells the story of Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), who was diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986, the early days of the AIDS epidemic. Unable to get effective medicine due to government restrictions, Woodroof begins smuggling in illegal medications to help AIDS patients in Texas and the rest of the country. "Dallas Buyers Club" also stars Jared Leto as Rayon, a transgender woman. Leto, who lost 40 pounds for the part, told us it was "the role of a lifetime."

About Time Movie Review

About Time Movie Review
Movie: About Time; Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lindsay Duncan, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie, Richard Cordery; Director: Richard Curtis; Rating: **1/2 - Watch for a few good laughs.

Set in a characteristically middle-class English milieu, "About Time" is a sci-fi romantic comedy whose premise is very much on the lines of "Back to the Future" or "The Time Traveller's Wife", where the protagonist can travel back in time.

In an idyllic sea-side town in Cornwall, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) is like any other ordinary boy leading an ordinary life. He is adorably geeky but embarrassingly incompetent.

R.I.P.D. – review

Part Men in Black, part Ghost, this goofy supernatural action-adventure is lucky to have Jeff Bridges

Robert Schwentke directed The Time Traveller's Wife and Flightplan; now he takes control of this goofy and derivative supernatural action-adventure, based on a comic-book series by Peter Lenkov. Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds play two deceased cops who are employed by heaven to patrol the earth looking for "dead-ohs", mouldering humans who are dead but refuse to come quietly: they are the Rest In Peace Department. The borrowings are very obvious – Men in Black meets Ghost – and this film has been very coldly received in the Us, with awful notices and worse box-office receipts. Yet for all the hostile reviews, I thought Jeff Bridges was rather funny, playing Roy, the undead 19th-century lawman. He doesn't justify the price of admission by himself, but he sure does try.

Rating: 2/5

Rachel McAdams Hits All the Right Red-Carpet Notes

Rachel McAdams Hits All the Right Red-Carpet Notes
Rachel McAdams made a triumphant return to the red carpet this week for the London and Munich screenings of About Time. On Saturday she wore a short black dress to the Munich event and joked around on the red carpet. At Thursday's London premiere, she wore a floor-length Roksanda Ilincic gown and debuted a fiery red hair color at the event, where she posed with her costars Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie, as well as the film's director, Richard Curtis. It's the first time we've seen Rachel out and about on the press trail since this April, when she promoted the romantic drama To the Wonder in La. Her latest project is a British-based romantic comedy and science fiction movie - it focuses on a young man, played by Domhnall, who tries to change his past to have a better future. It's not the first time Rachel has taken on

Why can't women time travel?

From The Terminator to Back to the Future to Richard Curtis's new film About Time, movies love time travel – but it's strictly for men. Anna Smith wishes she could turn back the clock

Poor Rachel McAdams. Three time-travel movies and not a whiff of the action. First was 2009's The Time Traveller's Wife, in which Eric Bana played a Chicago librarian darting through time while his on-screen wife McAdams plodded on faithfully in the present. Then, two years later, came Midnight in Paris. Owen Wilson got to party in the roaring 1920s every day of his holiday, while oblivious fiancee McAdams went sightseeing. And now Richard Curtis's new film, About Time, sees McAdams stay home as her partner Domhnall Gleeson goes time-travelling in secret, in a bid to change his past and have a better future. This time it's a gift – passed down the male line of the family.

Review: R.I.P.D.

Based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, R.I.P.D. is a spectacular wild and whimsical buddy-cop action/adventure that critics will excoriate but despite that, will likely find an audience. If the previews and trailers have reminded you of Men in Black, the movie will feel like a trip down memory lane. Directed by Robert Schwentke (Red, The Time Traveler's Wife), R.I.P.D combines elements of Mib with flavors of Beetlejuice, Ghost and hints of many other popular films.

The film plays as if it hopes that by being entirely derivative of hits it will likewise be a hit, and that's what sets off alarm bells in a critic's mind. But try as I might, every time I started to think "Here's where it starts to suck," the movie did something to make me laugh in spite of myself. That's quite an accomplishment for a writing

Robert Schwentke to Direct The Finest Hours for Disney

Robert Schwentke to Direct The Finest Hours for Disney
Director Robert Schwentke (R.I.P.D.) has signed on to direct The Finest Hours for Walt Disney Pictures. We first reported on this project back in August 2011, when Disney acquired the rights to the non-fiction book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias.

The story is set in 1952, when a vicious Noreaster storm devastated the New England coastline, with two massive oil tankers caught in the middle. When both ships were sliced in half, the Coast Guard mounted a heroic rescue attempt to save the crew members at sea.

The Fighter screenwriters Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson wrote the adaptation, with James Whitaker and Dorothy Aufiero producing. It isn't known when production will begin.

Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D. hits theaters July 19, and he also co-wrote the screenplay for director Neil Marshall's The Last Voyage of Demeter, which is currently in pre-production. The filmmaker's other directing credits include Red,
