The Hunger Games Star Jennifer Lawrence reflects on the possibility of returning to the franchise.
Released in 2012, the first The Hunger Games film not only marked a before and after for female heroes on the big screen, but also for the career of its protagonist Jennifer Lawrence.
Lawrence said that she is open to returning to the 'Hunger Games' franchise after she became a household name for her work as Katniss in the four movies. "Oh, my God - totally!" Lawrence told Variety while promoting her new coming-of-age comedy 'No Hard Feelings'.
The actress said: "If Katniss ever could come back into my life, 100 per cent."
Looking off camera, she added: "My producing partner just clutched her heart."
The four 'Hunger Games' instalments starred Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Woody Harrelson.
An upcoming prequel movie, "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes", stars Viola Davis, Rachel Zegler, Tom Blyth, Peter Dinklage, Jason Schwartzman and Hunter Schafer. The film chronicles Coriolanus Snow's rise to power to become President of Panem. It is set for release Nov. 17.
"No Hard Feelings" is a raunchy comedy starring Lawrence as a 32-year-old Uber driver who is hired by a wealthy couple (Matthew Broderick and Laura Benanti) to date and seduce their 19-year-old son (Andrew Barth Feldman) to help him get out of his shell before heading off to college in exchange for a car.
