Hunger Games to be four movies!

Hunger Games to be four movies!


Following in the heels of the Harry Potter franchise and Twilight, Lionsgate has confirmed that Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novels from The Hunger Games trilogy will be split for a total of four films. Depending on how it’s done, Mocking Jay could be the one that’s split into two to give it the four films, but who knows how it’ll go down?

Here’s an excerpt from an article featured on Deadline:

Lionsgate executives told Wall Street analysts this morning to expect big things from The Hunger Games, a series of four action films that the studio will release from the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins. COO Joe Drake said it was “the highest-selling film we’ve ever had” at the Cannes Film Festival and that overseas exhibitors consider it “the movie that can change their company.” Although Lionsgate wouldn’t disclose its budget for the films, Drake says Hunger Games could become an “outsized success” for Lionsgate. The studio says it bought the rights before the books became runaway bestsellers, and it has “retained the majority of the upside” in its talent and distribution deals.

However it goes, just know that Jennifer Lawrence, Lionsgate and the rest of the main cast probably won’t mind once they make millions of dollars off it since the film will likely add several more details to stretch it into four films.

”The Hunger Games” will be released on March 23, 2012.
