Shailene Woodley Ditches Divergent

Several years ago, America's biggest obsession were young adult movie adaptations. The success of Twilight and The Hunger Games led Hollywood studios to the young adult section of Barnes and Noble looking for the next YA adaptation. But jumping on the bandwagon can result in unfortunate consequences. For example, the Divergent series starring Shailene Woodley was popular but failed to match Jennifer Lawrence's billion dollar Hunger Games success. The third movie in the Divergent trilogy, Allegiant flopped at the box office. There was supposed to be the second part of Allegiant, but due to the disappointing return on investment, producers decided to turn it into a TV movie, or a television pilot to introduce a new series. Vanity Fair reports that Woodley was asked on the red carpet for Big Little Lies on Tuesday if she will be involved in the Divergent TV series and she said: "No, I'm not going to be on the television show." Woodley said the same thing last September in an interview with Screenrant, stating,  “I didn’t sign up to be in a television show. Out of respect to the studio and everyone involved, they may have changed their mind and may be doing something different, but I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show.” What do you think?
