Hunger Games: Catching Fire Script Delivered
03.06.12 by REELZ
Although The Hunger Games won't be released until March 23, the Suzanne Collins trilogy is already poised to be a box office hit. With hundreds of screenings sold out and insiders predicting a $70 Million opening weekend, it's no surprise that fans are hungry for more.
That being said, followers will be happy to know that the script for the second movie, Catching Fire, is near complete.
Screenwriter Simon Beaufoy told E's Marc Malkin, "I just finished the first draft, literally a few days ago. I'm waiting to see what everyone thinks."
Those who have read and loved The Hunger Games series can rest assured that Beaufoy is staying true to the books and is working closely with Collins.
She's reading this draft at the moment and she'll tell me, 'You can't do that. You must do this.' Because there are some things that are sacrosanct to her readers and she knows them very well and she'll let me know.
Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson will return to the big screen in Catching Fire on Nov. 22, 2013.
