Summit Entertainment (of Twilight and Hunger Games fame) has assigned writer Brian Duffield to pen the Insurgent movie script! This is exciting news considering the Divergent film only started shooting last April and will not be released until next year.

The studio used their official Divergent account to confirm the news:

Insurgent will be produced by Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher  via their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian. The second installment continues the journey of Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) as war with the Erudite faction looms closer. Allies will become enemies, the stakes will get higher and secrets will be revealed. Theo James and Kate Winslet also star.

Who is excited?! I know I am.

Divergent will hit theaters 21 March 2014, and Roth’s third and final installment in the series will be released 22 October 2013. Don’t forget to watch the Today show tomorrow to see the Allegiant cover!
