Last month the final film in ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise (‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’) hit the big screen. Now there’s already talk of developing some ‘Hunger Games’ prequel. How does the star of the franchise, Jennifer Lawrence, feel about that?
She was asked while at the premiere of her new movie, ‘Joy.’ Jennifer didn’t mince words.
No, of course not! That can’t be true. It’s too soon.”
Well, I think her opinion on the idea is clear- LOL.
When asked if she thought ‘The Hunger Games’ had the potential to be the kind of franchise that ‘Harry Potter’ has become, Jennifer was again, um, forthright.
Screw that. No, way too soon. No support. I think it’s too soon. The body’s not even cold yet.”
Lucky for the studio, Jennifer’s character, Katniss, likely wouldn’t be in the prequels, so they don’t necessarily need her participation ;). However, I don’t know if I’m interested in the idea of ‘The Hunger Games’ prequels either. I guess it would tell the story of how the Capitol rose to power and the districts lost power? Hmmm… perhaps that could be interesting. Never say never, I guess.
