Shailene Woodley Surprised About 'Ascendant' Straight to TV News

Shailene Woodley Surprised About 'Ascendant' Straight to TV News

Shailene Woodley is just as surprised as the rest of us about the Ascendant news.

The 24-year-old actress, who stars as Tris in the film franchise, spoke to Deadline about the news while arriving at 2016 San Diego Comic-Con.

“Honestly, I was on a plane when all that happened and I landed, and I’m like ‘Whoa, what’s going on?!’” she shared. “I need to talk and find out what the details are.”

Shailene didn’t comment on if she’d return as Tris for the TV plans at all.

If you missed it, Lionsgate announced yesterday that Ascendant, the final film, would skip the big screen for a TV movie and spinoff series.

The final film in the Divergent film series, Ascendant, will not be making it’s big screen debut at all, according to Variety.

According to the trade, the film which stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort and more will wrap up with a television movie and a spinoff series instead.

Lionsgate plans to “wrap up the film series on the small screen, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation. That would then segue into a standalone television series set in the same post-apocalyptic world.”

Shooting on Ascendant was planned for this summer in Atlanta, however, the box office performance of Allegiant has caused the studio to re-think the decision.

For the television wrap up, “the idea is to finalize the storylines involving the current cast and to introduce a new cast, who would then continue the series on either a traditional or streaming network.”

Joseph David-Jones Talks 'Allegiant,' Possible Return to 'Legends of Tomorrow' - JJJ Interview!

Joseph David-Jones Talks 'Allegiant,' Possible Return to 'Legends of Tomorrow' - JJJ Interview!

Check out this brand new interview with the super hot and talented Joseph David-Jones!

JJJ caught up with him about his role as Hollis in the new Divergent film, Allegiant, which is now in theaters.

We also asked about his portrayal of Connor Hawke/Green Arrow in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

It turns out he’s Diggle’s (David Ramsey) son and we’re dying for him to return! There’s so much story left to tell there!

Check out our interview with Joseph below!

JustJaredJr.com: First, let’s talk about Allegiant! Tell us about Hollis! He wasn’t in the books, right?

Joseph David-Jones: Correct. Hollis is a newly added character to the Divergent world for on screen. He is one of the leaders of the Factionless army, a General second only to Edgar (Jonny Weston) in Evelyn’s regime. If I could describe Hollis in one word it would be “loyal”! He is completely loyal without question to his leader Evelyn (Naomi Watts) and his best friend/mentor, Edgar.

What was it like working with Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and everyone? Was there someone you worked with most?

JDJ: It was really a lot of fun. It’s always great working with a cast of people around my own age, especially shooting in a new city where I don’t know anyone. But everyone was extremely welcoming and super down to earth. While I got to hang out off set with most of the young cast, most of my scenes were with Jonny so I think we became the better friends.

“First of all, he’s adorable,” Zoe said when asked why. “Also, our characters…me and Miles have this love-hate relationship in real life and also in the film. So we thought, give us something to work with. The tension is so palpable.”

Theo recently revealed that training for the film got pretty intense and he injured his face a few times!

“I slipped and I was supposed to grab something as the ship dived and I missed it and went headfirst into a wall,” he explained. Theo was okay though and went on to say it was more of a bruise to his ego than to his face!
