Possibility of Prequels in the Hunger Games Film Franchise
Francis Lawrence, the director behind three of the four Hunger Games movies, sat for an interview with MTV, and discussed the possibility of continuing with the highly successful franchise.
Everybody is thinking about [expanding the franchise], and talking about it. I just think that one has to go into that world carefully. A huge part of what makes the stories great is that it was really built upon this idea of the consequence of war, and you have an amazing character like Katniss at the center of it. To just say, ‘Oh, we’re still in the Hunger Games world’ is really risky. You need to make sure that you have something new to say. (MTV.com & The Hollywood Reporter)
