Hunger Games Sequel Release Date Announced
They haven’t even finished making the first film yet!
Filming hasn’t yet finished on Hunger Games, and already Lionsgate has announced that it will release Catching Fire – the film adaptation of the second book in Suzanne Collins’ bestselling Hunger Games trilogy – on 22 November 2013.
Joe Drake, President of Lionsgatde Motion Picture Group, said, “The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal. The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.” What’s the betting they’re already wondering if they can split the final book into two movies?
The Hunger Games, directed by Gary (Pleasantville) Ross will be released on 23 March 2012.
And while we’re on the subject, here are two new photos from The Hunger Games, featuring Jennifer Lawrence (as Katniss Everdeen) and Josh Hutcherson (as Peeta Mellark).
