As Summit prepares to say goodbye to its phenomenally popular Twilight franchise, the search is on for another YA adaptation to follow in its lucrative footsteps. One especially promising property is Divergent, a bestselling dystopian teen novel penned by Veronica Roth. Summit picked up the movie rights before the book even hit shelves, and is now eager to push the project into production.
To that end, they’ve just started early talks with Limitless director Neil Burger. Burger reportedly got the offer after beating out several other big-name filmmakers. More details after the jump.
