Jennifer Lawrence will work with director Francis Lawrence on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay
It looks like director Francis Lawrence will be hanging out with District 12 tribute Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) for two more films as it’s been reported that he will be handling directing duties for THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY Parts 1and 2. That should make life easier on everyone involved as having to swap directors every film can surely be a hassle. So now THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY Parts 1 and 2 have a confirmed director, screenwriter (Danny Strong) and of course all the surviving actors, the main ones being Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, will be coming back for each of the films. Now we all just have to wait for the upcoming onslaught of photos from THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE which will hit theaters next year.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is set to star Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne), Sam Claflin (Finnick Odair) Stephanie Leigh Schlund (Cashmere), Jenna Malone (Johanna Mason), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy), Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee), Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Amanda Plummer (Wiress), Lynn Cohen (Mags), Jeffrey Wright (Beetee), Alan Ritchson (Gloss), Bruno Gunn (Brutus), Meta Golding (Enobaria), E. Roger Mitchell (Chaff) and Maria Howell (Seeder). THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be released in theaters on November 22, 2013. (Collider)
