‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant- Part 1’ Production Has Begun in Atlanta

Another blockbuster film has begun production in Atlanta, with Lionsgate confirming that work on The Divergent Series: Allegiant- Part 1 is underway.

Principal photography has begun on the the third installment of the blockbuster Divergent action adventure franchise, which means we have multiple heroes in our midst, with Captain America: Civil War currently filming and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 headed our way this year as well.

The third Divergent film has a stellar cast that Atlantans should keep an eye out for in the city, including returning stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts. Additional returning castmembers include Ray Stevenson, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Keiynan Lonsdale, Jonny Weston, Mekhi Phifer and Daniel Dae Kim.

New castmembers to look out for around town are Jeff Daniels, Nadia Hilker and Bill Skarsgård.

The first two Divergent films have grossed more than $550 million at the global box office and are Lionsgate’s highest-grossing films domestically outside The Hunger Games and Twilight franchises.

Look out for Allegiant- Part 1 to hit theaters Friday, March 18, 2016. The final installment in the series, Allegiant- Part 2, is slated for release on March 24, 2017.
