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.
Danny Strong is writing both Mockingjay scripts, and Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth will all be back. The final two movies follow heroine Katniss Everdeen’s journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol, and she must decipher for herself whom she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.
Lawrence, whose credits include Constantine, I Am Legend, and most recently Water for Elephants, replaced Gary Ross at the helm of the currently in production Catching Fire in April.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Book Synopsis
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’ family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. This thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’ groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy is both powerful and haunting.
