Hunger Games film series director Francis Lawrence revealed he’s had conversations about helming the potential prequel movie.
Earlier this year, Lionsgate announced it was working with Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins to develop a new film based on her upcoming prequel novel. Due to be released next summer, the prequel is said to be set 64 years before the events of the original novel and is timed to occur during the Tenth Hunger Games.
During an interview with People, Francis Lawrence was asked about returning to the Hunger Games franchise for the prequel, having already directed three installments of the film series. In response, Francis Lawrence revealed that he actually has been talking with Suzanne Collins and Lionsgate about directing the potential film, adding that he would love to revisit the franchise:
“Yeah. I mean, I’ve definitely been talking to Suzanne about it and to Lionsgate about it, and so, you know, it’s something that I would absolutely love to do.”

The original Hunger Games trilogy centered on Katniss Everdeen’s rising popularity on the televised battle royale death match called The Hunger Games and her subsequent leadership role in the uprising against the fascist government. Lionsgate released four films based on the novels starring Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence as Everdeen opposite Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, and Elizabeth Banks. The film quadrilogy collectively grossed nearly $3 billion at the worldwide box office.
Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games prequel novel will be released on May 19, 2020.
