"The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn' films and about which we're tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise."
Los Angeles, April 15 - The big screen adaptation of Allegiant, the third and final in the Divergent book trilogy, will be split into two parts.

The studio also helmed the Twilight and Hunger Games so the decision makes sense, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger revealed, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in 'Allegiant', a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies, they said in a joint statement.

The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn' films and about which we're tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise.

The first Allegiant movie is scheduled to be released March 16, 2016, while part two will be released a year later on March 24.
