Neil Burger in Talks to Direct Adaptation of Dystopian YA Novel DIVERGENT

Limitless Director in reported talks to direct Divergent.  We love any Divergent movie talk!

From Collider.com:

Though Summit/Lionsgate already has the young adult market cornered with the Twilight and Hunger Games franchises, Summit (which is now owned by Lionsgate) is looking to turn yet another popular YA book series into a feature film franchise.  Variety reports that The Illusionist and Limitless helmer Neil Burger has entered early talks to direct an adaptation of Divergent.

Written by Veronica Roth at the ripe old age of 22, the book has drawn comparisons to the Hunger Games series for its similar futuristic setting in which teen-on-teen violence takes place.  Though blatant ripoffs are easy to spot, I’ve actually heard good things about Divergent and the novel—which is the first in a trilogy—is quite popular.  Hit the jump for more.

See a full list of Neil Burger's work and tell us what you think of him directing Divergent in the comments.
