Jeff Daniels is in final negotiations to join the cast of both parts of “The Divergent Series: Allegiant,” the last two chapters of Lionsgate’s young adult franchise.
Continuing the adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling book series, Daniels will play David who is the leader of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.
The agency is behind the creation of the societies that Tris was living in and the reason behind their creation is slowly revealed.
Robert Schwentke will helm the first part which begins shooting in May. The second part has yet to score a director. The first part is slated for release March 18th 2016.
