With The Hunger Games cleaning up nicely at the box office this year, it was only a matter of seconds before a sequel was greenlit, in the form of Catching Fire.
Lionsgate has a potential license to print money with this franchise, and they’re not stopping with a second film, as they’ve already tapped some talent to help turn the third book in the dystopian series into a two part film.
Danny “Game Change” Stron has been recruited for the upcoming third and fourth Hunger Games rounds, straight off of his success for winning two Emmy awards for his work on on the Sarah Palin TV Movie and The Butler.
Francis Lawrence is currently directing Catching Fire, but it’s unclear yet whether or not he’ll return for more Hunger Games.
