In a recent interview with Shailene Woodley for her latest movie "Snowden", the actress made it clear that she has no plans of reprising her role in the movie if released as a TV movie.
Speaking with Erin Lim in a sit-down interview, the actress said:"From what I know, they want to proceed with a television show, which is not something that I signed up to do... Out of respect to the whole scenario, there could be things that have changed, but I didn't sign up to do a TV show."
According to reports, Lionsgate announced that the finale of the "Divergent" series will be released as a TV movie after "Allegiant" struggled in the US Box Office. The movie only debuted with $29 million which is 44% lower than its previous installments, Insurgent at $52.3 million and Divergent at 54.6 million.
Although the movie did quite well outside the US, the movie only got a global total of $82.4 million from its $110 million shooting budget. Not to mention the marketing cost which should increase those figures much higher.
Reviews of the last movie weren't pleasing as well such as Rotten Tomatoes' 13% rating, IMDB's 5.8 out of 10 stars and "The Guardian's 2 out of 5-star review saying "The penultimate part of the Divergent franchise combines a weak plot with dull action and unappealing leads"
Woodley is not alone in expressing disapproval of the TV finale from the cast, Miles Teller, who plays Peter Hayes, said "At this point, it's a different set of circumstances. We'll see. I honestly haven't talked to anybody... We all signed on for it in hopes that it'd be released in theaters, and we all had every intention of finishing."
Although the actress has not officially said no to the TV finale, her recent comment sounds like she is certainly not up for it.
