‘Mockingjay’ Director Hints About More Hunger Games Movies
With Mockingjay, Part 2, Katniss’ story ends. But according to Francis Lawrence, Lionsgate might make more movies set in the Hunger Games universe.
Three out of the four Hunger Games movies based on Suzanne Collins’ popular trilogy have been released so far, with Mockingjay, Part 1 hitting cinemas last week.
“Everybody is thinking about [expanding the franchise], and talking about it,” the director reveals.
However, he also shares his worries about diving into a Katniss-less world, and having to hype up a whole new set of characters.
“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,” Lawrence says. “To just say, ‘Oh, we’re still in the Hunger Games world’ is really risky.”
