"The Hunger Games" Sequel Script is Almost Done!!
Looks like we won't have to wait long for the second Hunger Games movie to release!
The script for "Catching Fire" is almost completely written already and is expected to release in theaters on November 22, 2013!!
As far as sequels go this is pretty fast turn around and we are not complaining!
The script writer, Simon Beaufoy, said this about the on-screen adaptation:
"Things always do have to change otherwise there's always something very flat about very faithful adaptations. But on the other hand, there's an extremely loyal fan base and readership and you just have to be careful of how many liberties you do take. So fortunately Suzanne [Hunger Games author] is here to help me. She's reading this draft at the moment and she'll tell me, 'You can't do that. You must do this.' Because there are some things that are sacrosanct to her readers and she knows them very well and she'll let me know."
We are so relieved to hear that Suzanne Collins is working with the script writer to ensure consistency with the books.
We are counting down the days (17!) until the first movie releases and are so happy to hear that the second one won't be far behind!
