Lionsgate Confirms the Return of Major Cast Members of ‘The Hunger Games’
Earlier in the week, Lionsgate issued a press release confirming new director Francis Lawrence and also included confirmation of the return of major cast members from ‘The Hunger Games’ for ‘Catching Fire’.
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth will reprise their roles as Katniss, Peeta and Gale, with Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, and Woody Harrelson also returning to their respective roles. The film will be produced by Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. Production is slated to begin this Fall, and the film will be released on November 22, 2013.
Thought I should post this since I’ve seen a couple of comments in the last few days wondering about the return of the actors for the sequel. I myself had been wondering about Woody Harrelson since he just signed onto an HBO detective show. Hopefully this eases some worries out there!
