The Hunger Games sequel has a new official title. Lionsgate has made a slight change to the title of the Francis Lawrence-directed sequel. Initially titled Catching Fire, the title is now The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. I guess that the studio wanted to make sure there was no confusion for people that have not read the books. Although uncomfirmed, the third book will likely be released as two separate films and titled The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
Simon Bea and Michael Arndt adapted the screenplay from Suzanne Collins' novel. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, and Woody Harrelson are all set to return. We will have a number of new cast additions we will be announcing soon.
I am excited to see this next film in the series. Who would you like to see cast in the numerous supporting roles?
