If Lionsgate, the studio behind the mega-grossing “Hunger Games” series, decides to re-enter the arena, it will do so without Jennifer Lawrence.
The woman who brought Katniss Everdeen to life on the big screen made it clear that she won’t be dusting off the bow and arrows for rumored prequels to the series that made her a star.
"I wouldn’t be involved," Lawrence told Variety during the premiere of her new film, Joy (2015). "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 that the studio was exploring new plot lines and spinoff opportunities at last week’s UBS Global Media and Communications Conference. He told investors that the series could be like Harry Potter and 'live on and on.'
