Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - Red filmmaker Robert Schwentke will take over from Neil Burger as the director of the sequel to the upcoming movie adaptation of Divergent.

Burger took charge of the first sci-fi film, based on Veronica Roth's best-selling novels about life in a dystopian world, but he was forced to scrap plans to helm the follow-up, Insurgent, due to scheduling difficulties - he is still working on post-production for Divergent, which is scheduled for release in the U.S. in March .

Schwentke has now been handed the reigns of the franchise, which stars Shailene Woodley, and he will begin pre-production on Insurgent, which is scheduled for release in March, 2015, reports Deadline.com.

The third film in the trilogy, Allegiant, is expected to follow a year later. It is not yet known if Schwentke or Burger will be involved in that instalment.
