Just as San Diego Comic-Con was getting ready to kick off last month, it was announced that the fourth and final movie in the
, won\'t hit theaters as originally planned. Instead, it will air as a TV movie at a soon-to-be-determined channel or platform. The news about moving to television came as a shock to not just fans, but also to all the actors involved, according to actor Miles Teller.
It caught us all by surprise. Things do change anytime they\'re messing with something that was not the original intention. We all signed on for it in hopes that it\'d be released in theaters, and we all had every intention of finishing [the franchise].
