Collider has the exclusive that Francis Lawrence, director for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, will be returning to film the final two films in ‘The Hunger Games’ movie franchise.
We have just learned that Francis Lawrence, who was hired to direct The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, has now been tapped to helm the remainder of the series. While author Suzanne Collins‘ The Hunger Games books amount to a trilogy, Lionsgate has split the final novel, Mockingjay into two parts, as is now the custom for major adaptation of best-selling book series.
