Lionsgate-Summit must be liking what they see of Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire because they've signed him for the final two installments of the series, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and Part 2, which splits the final book in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy into two films.
A writer for the two-part final chapter of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay has been found. Read on for all the details on the man ready to take on this mammoth adaptation for fans around the globe. No pressure there, buddy!
Even though the first The Hunger Games isn't even on DVD or Blu-ray yet and the second film, Catching Fire, is still a long way off, that hasn't stopped Lionsgate from announcing release dates for the final two films in the series based upon the third book, Mockingjay.
Although it was widely reported last June that Lionsgate intended to split Mockingjay, the third book in Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy, into two films, Nina Jacobson, the producer who has been credited with discovering the series, says that decision is "not set in stone" and they are "still figuring it all out."
