Coming Soon is reporting that Summit Entertainment has set a release date for the Divergent movie: March 21, 2014!
The screenplay for the film is being written by Evan Daugherty with a filmmaker soon to be announced. The studio acquired the film rights to the novel in early 2011 several months before the book Divergent was published. Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce the film via their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian.
The studio has yet to choose a director, but rumor has it that The Illusionist and Limitless director Neil Burger is being courted for the job.
Looks like Lionsgate (which owns Summit Entertainment) is hoping the third full week of March is a lucky time for YA book adaptations, given that it was the same week they released The Hunger Games earlier this year!
