Jonny Weston is in final negotiations to join Summit’s “Insurgent,” the sequel to “Divergent” starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James.

Octavia Spencer recently joined the cast, with Jai Courtney, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort on board to reprise their roles.

The film will be directed by Robert Schwentke from a screenplay by Brian Duffield and Akiva Goldsman.

Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher will produce the film through their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian.

“Insurgent” will be released on March 20. The third book, “Allegiant,” will be split into two films that are slated for release on March 18, 2016, and March 24, 2017, respectively. “Divergent” opened this past March and has grossed $252 million worldwide.

Weston has a handful of films set to bow in the next year including Paramount’s “Project Almanac” and “Taken 3.” He is repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts Entertainment.
