‘The Divergent Trilogy’ sales surpass one million copies
Veronica Roth has been coasting along on the New York Times’ Bestseller List for the better part of this year thanks to both Divergent and the recently released first sequel Insurgent.
According to a tweet from publisher Harper Collins yesterday, a new landmark has been reached for the series: Sales for the two books have now reached over one million copies!
That certainly doesn’t hurt Divergent’s chances of making it to a movie.
Last year, prior to Divergent’s release, Twilight film studio Summit Entertainment (now Lions Gate) snagged the movie adaptation rights to Divergent Movie and hired Snow White And The Huntsman screenwriter Evan Daugherty to adapt it.
In a (great) recent interview with Veronica Roth, she updated to say that it is still “so early in the process that I can’t say with any clarity what is going to happen” with the movie project.
Well, with the books now in seven digit sales numbers and the final installment on the way next fall, the process just might speed up soon!
