The Hunger Games will continue says Josh Hutcherson
Following their panel in Hall H yesterday, the cast of “The Hunger Games” assembled for Conan last night where an interesting question, and answer, came up. Conan asked the stars if, despite the November 20 release being the final installment in the series, there had been any talks of a prequel or sequel film. Before star Jennifer Lawrence could offer her two cents though, co-star Josh Hutcherson blurted out “there is,” before quickly covering his mouth to a wide-eyed Lawrence.
“I’m sorry, I can’t say that,” he added. “We’ll see what happens.”
Check out the video below and decide for yourself if Hutcherson spilled the beans or was just having fun.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong and features a cast that also includes Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The lineup is joined by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 co-stars Academy Award-winner Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross.
The film will be released in theaters and IMAX on November 20, 2015.
