'Insurgent' Movie News: Film's Writer Sells Coming-Of-Age Horror Story To Studio, Could Shailene Woodley Come On As Lead? [VIDEO]

With production finished up on the next chapter in the Divergent series, it looks like one of the screenwriters tasked with bringing the book to life is gearing up to do an outside project in between the movies. Could the franchise's star come with him though?

Deadline reported on Monday that Insurgent writer Brain Duffield sold his script, The Babysitter, to McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision. McG and Mary Viola will produce the coming-of-age horror story. Duffield will executive produce with Wonderland's Steven Bello.

While the logline is under wraps right now, the fact that it is labeled as a coming-of-age horror story could attract another Insurgent member to the project: Shailene Woodley.

It doesn't say whether the main character is a guy or girl, but Woodley has become a staple as of late in the coming-of-age genre with her work in The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars, and even Divergent. Depending on how big the project is, she has also talked about how much she enjoys working in independent films.

Duffield has also written the Western, Jane Got A Gun, which is directed by Gavin O'Connor with Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor and Noah Emmerich starring.

As of now The Babysitter is expected to become part of the studio's 2015 slate so depending on when filming takes place for the next two Divergent series movies, Woodley could be a contender to help bring this film to life.

Insurgent is set to come out on March 20, 2015.
