Catching Fire' the next movie in 'The Hunger Games' Trilogy: What are people saying?
With the great success of ‘The Hunger Games’ last weekend, audiences are teetering on the edge of their seats while they wait for the next installment in the series, ‘Catching Fire.’ People can’t stop talking about the new movie and what to expect.
One of the big appeals of the second book’s adaptation to film for fans will be the casting of the character Finnick Odair, who plays the book’s heartthrob. There are so many actors out there who could play this role and fans can’t wait to see who they pick. Darren Franich at Entertainment Weekly said, “Finnick is incredibly handsome. Really, he’s practically a joke of physical perfection.” Who could play that role?
Another thing to look forward to in ‘Catching Fire’ will be the new arena. After all this is ‘The Hunger Games’ so you can expect there to be some fighting. “It will be so much more brutal then the first one. It is just diabolical,” said Breanne Heldman from NextMovie in an interview for MTV News.
The set of the new film will be completely different and it is still undetermined where it will be shot. ‘Catching Fire’ is based in a tropical setting so we can expect some big changes. The film will come out so soon after the first one the actors will hardly get a chance to rest before jumping back on set.
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays the main character Katniss Everdeen told MTV News, "The training was never, like, tough. It was intense, but it was fun. So I'm looking forward to the next bout of training. For the second one, I will have a beard." We can expect a lot of changes visually in the second film. Even with all of these changes Lawrence is excited to start working on the next film.
There is still some speculation as to whether or not Gary Ross will be directing the next film. It looks good so far but, it isn’t set in stone. He did talk on MTV’s Rough Cut about the possibility and states that he would never do 3D for 'The Hunger Games' films because he thinks that "if we shoot the movie in 3D we become the Capitol."
Will Kristen Bell be able to snag a role in one of the films? She came out on Jimmy Kimmel Live a while back as this super fan of the books and since then has been pushing for a role, specifically as ‘Johanna Mason,’ ever since.
Mark the date because ‘Catching Fire’ will come out Nov 22, 2013. Until then re-read those books or read them if you haven't already and get excited for the next film.
