Summit Announce Robert Schwentke As New Director For "Insurgent"


Robert Schwentke Shailene Woodley Theo James

The sequel to 2013’s token teen dystopian fic Divergent has just ended up with a new director - Robert Schwentke. Summit made the announcement on Tuesday, via the LA Times. It’s not unusual for a film franchise to switch directors between installments, sometimes more than once. What’s strange is when a director leaves the project even before the first film is released, as is the case with this adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young adult series.

Divergent Still
Ahead of the release of Divergent, Summit has announced a new director for the sequel.

The first film was directed by Neil Burger (Limitless, The Lucky Ones). His replacement Schwentke has some experience with the fantasy genre, having worked on The Time Traveler’s Wife and 2013’s R.I.P.D. He is also the director behind the well-received action/comedy Red. All in all, it sounds like Insurgent is in good hands.

The trailer for R.I.P.D is finally here and it looks a riot. In case you haven't been following the production of this movie, it stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as deceased cops who work for the Rest in Peace Department, hunting down some scary looking ghoulish souls called 'Deados' who've escaped judgement.

But, there's a twist. Ryan's character Nick Walker is looking for the man who murdered him in a botched police operation. The trailer opens with Nick working for the real life police - he enters a warehouse looking for a criminal, though is quickly gunned down and sent to the R.I.P.D and told of his new role. There he meets Wild West lawman Roy Pulsipher (Bridges), his new partner who appears to channel his Oscar nominated role as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. The souls begin to get out of control and gunfights and chaos ensue, with the partners trying to defend the world "one soul at a time."

R.I.P.D Trailer


Nick Walker was a promising SWAT officer before getting brutally killed in a police raid. But waking up dead isn't the only thing that alarms him as he is whisked away to a police station in the heavens. He may be dead, but to the undead souls of the R.I.P.D., he's much too good to lose and so he is enlisted into the afterlife police force of the 'Rest In Peace Department' because criminals aren't just a thing of life. He must now fight the evil souls of the underworld that have escaped judgement as they threaten to terrorise the living; helping him is the veteran Sheriff Roy Pulsifer, an expert in the field of keeping dead souls at bay. Through the chaos of the misbalance between life and death and good and evil, Nick attempts to find the man who shot him dead and bring justice to both the living and the dead.
