The Hunger Games Will Catch Fire Again on November 22, 2013

3 Comments

With Gary Ross’ adaptation of “The Hunger Games”, the first in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy of young adult novels still in production with a month or so to go, and a release date of March 23, 2012 set in stone, Lionsgate is showing a lot of confidence in the franchise and already gone ahead and set the second movie, “Catching Fire” for a November 22, 2013 release date.

That’s just a year away from the first movie’s release, in case you were wondering. Which is curious, because I hadn’t heard that they were shooting the films back-to-back-to-back, and with star Jennifer Lawrence’s already stacked schedule beyond “Games”, I’m wondering how they’re going to pull that off. Then again, without giving away too much, “Catching Fire”, unlike the third/final book in the trilogy, could easily re-use a lot of the sets they’re already building for “The Hunger Games”, so pre-production on the sequel could potentially be cut by quite a bit.

“The Hunger Games” will star Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, Lenny Kravitz, and is directed by Gary Ross.
