Roadshow Films has announced, via a press release, that Lionsgate will release the film adaptation of Catching Fire, the second book in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy on 22 November 2013.
There are no additional details about this sequel, with The Hunger Games still in production and set for a March 2012 release. The Hunger Games is directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville) and features a massive cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
Linosgate co-COO and President of its Motion Picture Group, Larry Drake, adds “The magical thing about the Hunger Games trilogy is that the books have such a vastly broad appeal. The stories truly offer something for everyone, and the period around the Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.”
With no Australian release date announced as yet, our magical Thanksgiving weekend may simply be an exciting cinema outing in late November. Bringing a turkey to the film is optional.
