Francis Lawrence has revealed that more Hunger Games movies are being talked about, and he would be open to talk about any future projects.
Lawrence took over the director’s chair with Catching Fire last year, and will stay with the franchise until it concludes next year. Mockingjay - Part 1 has already topped the box office in the U.S. and the UK and has kicked off the epic conclusion to Suzanne Collins’ original book trilogy.
And while the original series will conclude this time next year, Lawrence has admitted that more movies could be a possibility. However, the director has waned that should these projects go ahead then it should be done with the greatest care.
Speaking to MTV, the director said: "Everybody is thinking about it, and talking about it. I just think that one has to go into that world carefully. Because I think a huge part of what makes the stories great is that it was really built on this idea of the consequence of war, and you have an amazing character like Katniss at the centre of it.
"And so to just say, 'Oh, we're still in the Hunger Games world', I think is really risky, and you need to make sure that you have something new to say, and either new characters need to be created that are just as compelling as Katniss."
"It's a tricky thing, but I'm definitely open to talking about it, and I think everybody's thinking about it. Everybody loves the world and the ideas."
While there is a possibility about further movies, it has not bee revealed if Katniss Everdeen would be at the centre of them and if Jennifer Lawrence would be returning to this iconic role.
Lawrence is joined on the cast list of Mockingjay - Part 1 by franchise favourites Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, and Elizabeth Banks, while Natalie Dormer and Julianne Moore are two of the big new additions to the cast list.
Mockingjay - Part 1 has already enjoyed huge box office success in its opening week on release, and looks set to be one of the biggest movies of 2014.
