divergent sequelsSummit

The debut of "Divergent," the latest YA book series to hit the big screen, is still a few months away, but its two sequels already have release dates.

Variety reports that the second novel, "Insurgent," will bow in theaters on March 20, 2015, while the third, "Allegiant," will debut on March 18, 2016. The first, "Divergent," is due out on March 21, 2014.

The sequels will differ from the first film in one major way: director Neil Burger will not continue with the series. Variety, which first broke the news, did not give a reason for Burger's departure. The director is currently working on post-production for "Divergent."

Shailene Woodley stars in the series as Tris Prior, a girl who chooses to leave her home and join up with a warring faction after she learns she is Divergent, or not suited to one particular group. The movie also stars Kate Winslet, Theo James, Jai Courtney, and Miles Teller.
