The hunger gamesone of the most successful sagas of the cinema of the past few years you will have a new movie in the form of a prequel, as has been reported this week by u.s. media.
The study Lionsgatethat brought the saga to the big screen, revealed its plans to to adapt The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (“Ballad of the singing birds and snakes”), the new book that the author Suzanne Collins plans to publish in early June.
The author has already given the go-ahead and commented on his satisfaction with the agreement. “Lionsgate has always been home to film the games the hunger, and I am pleased to return to the saga from a new book. Have been treated with great respect for the original material, to honor the theme and story elements, and forming an incredible team in front of and behind the screen”.
Francis Lawrence, who directed three of the four movies of The hunger games, will also go behind the camera in this new film. The producer Nina Jacobson and screenwriter Michael Arndt will return in addition to the saga. “The wait for the new book of Suzanne has been worth it,” said the president of Lionsgate, Joe Drake. “Offers everything fans could expect from The hunger games and, in addition, opens new paths and presents an overview of characters completely new,” he added.
The hunger games (2012), the only one of all the movies that directed by Gary Ross, opened a saga dystopian trending in Hollywood (later would other similar proposals as Divergent or The Maze Runner) and triumphed with Jennifer Lawrence as the protagonist, and 694 million dollars of revenue worldwide (on a budget of $ 78 million).
Francis Lawrence took the reins from the second film and directed the following three: The hunger games: In flames (2013), The hunger games: Sinsajo – Part 1 (2014) and The hunger games: Sinsajo – Part 2 (2015). In total, the four tapes got almost 3000 million dollars at the box office.
The saga crowned Jennifer Lawrence as the star world, and included in the cast Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and the great Donald Sutherland as Coriolanus Snow.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, whose a film adaptation is in a very early stage of the production, you have to Coriolanus Snow but at the age of 18 years old as the protagonist. The young Coriolanus is attractive and charming and even though the family Snow pass difficult times, sees the opportunity for a change in your fortune when it is chosen as mentor of the 10th Hunger Games. His euphoria wanes when he is assigned as a mentor to a girl from the impoverished District 12.
To interpret Snow already circulating the buzz with the name of Adam Driver (dyed blonde by). Can be decanted Lionsgate for that option, or bet for a new talent?
