We have just gotten notice from Summit Entertainment that director Neil Burger will not be directing Insurgent. Looks like the studio is ready to put Insurgent pre-production into action but Neil Burger is still extremely busy with Divergent post production. The official statement from Summit Entertainment is below:

Although it is sad news that Neil Burger won’t be joining us again for Insurgent, it is exciting to see how quickly the studio wants to move production for the second movie.
We’ve had the chance to talk to Neil Burger a few times in the past so it is very sad to see him go.
