Hungry for another Hunger Games
Gary Ross (Pleasantville/ Seabiscuit) has just started shooting the first Hunger Games film and and is still not finished announcing casts for the key roles for it, and here’s Lionsgate announcing a release of the Hunger Games Sequel, Catching Fire, which supposedly will hit the screen Novemberr 22, 2013. After Spider-Man’s sequence just announce last week, this kind of step is definitely a trend.
Lionsgates havent released any juicy details yet about the sequel except for what Variety picked up from co-COO Joe Drake, “The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal. The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.”
“Vastly broad appeal…”, chances are you would already know this and would agree to it if youve already gotten yourself a copy of Susanne Collins books series. Well, I havent. But I have read the synopsis several times and it really has aspects that Twilight and I Am Number Four failed to touch. But if you havent because you’re the movie-first-book-later kind like me, (Because you, too, dont want to get disappointed everytime the make a movie out a book, or series or books for that matter.) then you can check Empire’s synopsis (which I kind of enjoyed) of the film “here”.
Ross casts Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class), Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are Alright), Liam Hemsworth (The Last Song), Woody Harrelson (Zombieland), Elizabeth Banks (The Next Three Days), Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) , Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Donald Sutherland (The Eagle). And counting? It seems.
The film is set to hit your nearest silverscreen on March 23, 2012. Until then, people are crossing their fingers for various reasons. Im crossing mine for it to be as succesful as Twilight, but not like Twilight.
