Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (3)
Like many other adaptations of Young Adult novel series (Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight), the plan was to split the last book in the series ('Allegiant') into two films, with this movie basically covering the first half, and Allegiant: Part II (2017) covering the rest. However, due to negative reviews and a disappointing box office result, it was decided to turn Ascendant into a TV movie instead, to be followed by a spin-off TV series. Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Miles Teller subsequently pulled out of the project.
