With a screenplay by Noah Oppenheim (Jackie, The Maze Runner) and Adam Cooper (Exodus: Gods and Kings, Accepted) & Bill Collage (Exodus: Gods and Kings, Accepted) and Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Rent), The Divergent Series: Allegiant is based on the 2013 novel Allegiant by Veronica Roth, the third and final installment in her Divergent trilogy.
