Jennifer Lawrence On ‘Hunger Games’ Prequels: ‘It’s Too Soon’ | Film News
If Lionsgate, the studio behind the mega-grossing Hunger Games series, decides to re-enter the arena, it will have to do it without its main star Jennifer Lawrence. The woman who brought Katniss Everdeen to life on the big screen made it clear that she won’t be returning to the series that made her famous.“I wouldn’t be involved,” Lawrence told Variety during the premiere of her new film, Joy. She added: “I think it’s too soon. They’ve got to let the body get cold, in my opinion”.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 was originally supposed to be the end of the franchise, but Lionsgate vice chairman Michael Burns hinted at last week’s UBS Global Media and Communications Conference that the studio was thinking of new plot lines and spin off opportunities . He believes that the series could be like Harry Potter and “live on and on“.
That’s the idea he supported in front of the investors. Lawrence may be right that audiences need some time off from the world of Panem as Mockingjay – Part 2 is a box office hit, but it is on pace to be the lowest grossing film of the series on a domestic basis.
