Divergent Film Success To Be GREATER Than Twilight & Hunger Games?!

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilightBusiness BlitzBookzHunger Games


Well, we wouldn't be surprised seeing as Divergent IS chock-full of post-apocalyptic goodness, has a strong female lead, lots of angsty LOVE, and so many fantastical, science fictionary fun, and sad times!!

Lionsgate, the movie company that's made bagillions off of book-to-film franchises such as Twilight and The Hunger Games, wants you AND potential investors to know that Veronica Roth's futuristic in-progress trilogy WILL be just as successful — perhaps even MORE so — if it were to be made into a flick than both HG and the glittery vampire tale that makes ladies swoon!

Apparently, sales of the first book in the Divergent trilogy, which is set to be released as a film potentially starring The Descendants' Shailene Woodley, is higher than the first novels in both The Hunger Games and Twilight collections…

Sooooo basically it's gonna mean big BUCK$$$ for anyone who wants to front money for the film!

OOOO we can't wait until this project gets confirmed (and hopefully released in March 2014!) and we can begin talking directors/writers/cast!!!

Plus, we ADORE Divergent AND it's sequel Insurgent, and are waiting with baited breath for Roth's final installment!

    the first quarter of the first book is crap. cliche after cliche written like a bodice ripper,. couldn't get passed pg 60.

    I could barely choke down the first book. One of the most boring, uneventful book I have ever read.

    There are two books in this series, Divergent and Insurgent and when you combine the story, it then become a great story. I can see maybe two movies, but that's a stretch.
    You got to remember it's for young adults. You can download this and listen to this on Audiobook (I-Pod)and get a better story out of it because the narrator is pretty good.
    Twilight and The Hunger Game were also written for young adults, but those were great books.

    P.S. Obama is the worst President this country has ever had, whats wrong with you America?? or maybe you just don't want to give up your welfare checks for a job?

    I'm reading the second book now. What I hate is that apparently my mind has cast Jennifer Lawrence as Tris because that's who I hear and imagine for Tris's part. Which I could stop that. Liked Divergent more than Hunger Games. I wish they would make a follow-up movie to I Am Number Four. I loved that series.

    The book's sales are higher because it came out only last year. Tons and tons of people already know and like Twilight & The Hunger Games. A series came out very similar to both of them, especially the latter, of course it's going to do well. When Twilight first came out there wasn't any huge momentum to automatically mean success for the first book, and the reason is similar for The Hunger Games (because while having a bit of a love story, it is really nothing like Twilight). The End.

    I absolutely loved the Divergent series (so far, bring on book 3!). It was enthralling and I can't wait for them to bring the movie out. I'm skeptical about Shailene playing Tris though. Definately not what I pictured.
