Robert Schwentke, director of comic book moves RED and RIPD, has signed on to direct Divergent sequel Insurgent.

Schwentke steps in to take the place of Neil Burger, who had previously stated that he would only direct Divergent. Star Shailene Woodley is returning as Tris, and studio Summit Entertainment is obviously confident that the film will be a smash.

“INSURGENT continues the journey of Tris Prior as war now looms. Sides will be chosen, secrets will emerge, and to uncover the truth about her world, Tris must be stronger than ever because shocking choices and sacrifices lie ahead.”

Divergent is released 4 April in the UK. You can buy Divergent in paperback for £5.99 at Amazon.co.uk.
