Lionsgate Executives Hope to Create Hunger Games Prequel Movies
The executives at Lionsgate, the movie studio behind the popular film franchise, hope to create prequel movies. Book fans know that while Collins does reference past Hunger Games events in the original book series, she has never written any prequel short stories or novels herself. It is currently unknown if she will get involved with these new movie projects.
Fans of the Katniss Everdeen franchise should definitely expect to see prequels. ‘The one thing that kids say they missed [from the early Hunger Games films] was there were no arenas,’ he [Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns] said, referencing the stadiums where contestants battled each other and noting the prior films only covered the 74th and 75th competitions. ‘If we went backwards, there obviously would be arenas.’ (The Hollywood Reporter)
