While Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games doesn’t arrive in theaters until March 23, the studio is playing it smart and planning ahead.
The mini-major is getting serious about the second installment as they’re already courting Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours scribe Simon Beaufoy to write Catching Fire, the second installment of the three book series that tracks the life and death adventures of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence).
Deadline adds that Gary Ross, who directed The Hunger Games, is coming back for the sequel. It’s unclear if this is exciting news as we’ve yet to see the first film. Based on the newly released trailer, I’m mixed.
There is no start date on the sequel, but it is high priority.
