‘Catching Fire’ Adds ‘Hunger Games’ to the Title


Hunger GamesThe upcoming sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, is now known as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

And it’s a good thing, because the inclusion of the word “sequel” when discussing Catching Fire — well, needless to say, that was really starting to take its toll on all of us.

The action-adventure adaptation will feature almost all of the same cast members from the March blockbuster, including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and more; behind the camera, though, will be completely different with new director Francis Lawrence and big-shot writers Michael Arndt and Simon Beaufoy now on board. The movie is already penciled for release on Nov. 22, 2013.
