The overwhelmingly flimsy start at the home release of Divergent Chapter 3: Behind the Wall prompted Lionsgate to re-budget the final part of the dilogy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, citing its sources, funding will be significantly cut.
"They do not specify specific numbers, but we are talking about several million dollars at least," - said the anonymous informant. Filming for Divergent Chapter 4 is due to start in the summer of 2016 with an eye to the March 2017 premiere.
In general, the project did not live up to the expectations of Lionsgate, which was counting on the creation of a franchise, whose storyline is built around a bright female image, as successful as "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games". While the first episode was still quite successful, earning more than $ 260 million at the worldwide box office with a production budget of $ 85 million, the second barely paid off.
The starting fees of the third part, which turned out to be almost two times less than the first two, also do not bode well for the project. The movie stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Naomi Watts, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Jeff Daniels, Johnny Weston, Bill Skarsgard and other actors.
