Third `Divergent` book to be split in two movies

Los Angeles: Lions Gate Entertainment company has decided to make two films from the final book in the `Divergent` trilogy.

The studio, which used the same strategy for `Twilight` and `The Hunger Games` franchises will follow the same for Veronica Roth`s `Allegiant`, the third book in the trilogy, reportedly.

Lionsgate motion picture group co-chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger revealed that they will adapt Roth`s trilogy novel into a total of four films instead of three.

"Veronica Roth brings her captivating story to a masterful conclusion in `Allegiant`, a rich, action-packed book with material that is ideally suited to two strong and fulfilling movies," they said.

The second book`s adaptation, `Insurgent` will release on March 20 next year and the first `Allegiant` movie will release on March 16, 2016.
