Taking a cue from the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” playbook, Lionsgate has announced they’ll be splitting the final “Hunger Games” movie down the middle and releasing the two instalments a year apart.

“Mockingjay Part 1″ and “Mockingjay Part 2″ will be released Nov. 21, 2014, and Nov. 20, 2015, respectively.

Meantime, Philip Seymour Hoffman (“Almost Famous”, “Capote”) was announced yesterday for the next film in the no-wonky-arrows-here series, “Catching Fire”.
