'Divergent Series: Ascendant' Cancellation Due To Theo James, Shailene Woodley Vendetta? Production Team To Recast

Rumor has it that the cancellation of "Divergent Ascendant" series came early prior to the release of "Divergent Allegiant." The exit of Robert Schwentke from the director's seat of the franchise triggered those theories.

According to Australia Network News, it seemed production would right where it should be for 'Divergent Ascendant' to meet its June 9 premiere date. However, recent developments sighted earlier issues about the movie's future due to the poor film performance and the income generated that was not expected.

On the other hand, James is currently engaged to Ruth Kearney and are planning to have a big wedding that may take a huge portion out of the actor's schedule and possibly stop him from doing "Ascendant." According to Movie News Guide, Woodley apparently finds James' reasoning unexcusable. 

The misunderstanding reportedly had the two thinking of backing out of doing the last "Divergent" movie. The "Allegiant" actress has also been accused of being the cause of the delayed wedding between the actor and his fiance.

Woodley states that if James were to backout, she would end up doing the same thing as well this is because she feels his character's role is important to the critical outcome and ending of "Ascendant." Moreover, Woodley believes that the changes in the script to make up for the absence of four in the storyline would make the film a huge flop. 

Lionsgate studio intends to close the series on the small screen with a "Divergent Ascendant" TV movie film. Most of the cast members have expressed their disappointment and disbelief over the news plus interest for a made-for-TV version of the film has promptly had them lose sight of it. 

Crossing out of "Divergent Series: Ascendant" might work out well for James, bearing in mind that his relationship will be left in silence now that he is away from rumored budding romantic affair with Woodley, according to an article from Jobs & Hire. This, however, could significantly have an impact  on the friendship of the fan-favorite couple.
