Hunger Games Sequel Release Date Set
Spiderman style announcement from Lionsgate
The news broke last week that the sequel to the second reboot of Spiderman (That sentence upsets us deeply) has a release date set already. This is becoming a worrying trend, with every studio seeming to lust after the next big franchise, Lionsgate have already announced that the sequel to Hunger Games, Catching Fire, will be released on November 22nd, 2013.
Hunger Games is an immensely popular series of books, and the first film is greatly anticipated. That film is set for release on March 23rd next year, and studio bosses seem to be hoping for the next Twilight or Harry Potter here. Suzanne Collins' trilogy is widely read, and even though the studio has not released an official synopsis as yet, we can assume that the plot will remain pretty similar to the second book in the series.
Hunger games will star Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Toby Jones, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland. More news on that film as we get it, presuming we don't have to report on the third in the series in the next couple of days...
