Even though I don't have much interest in this whole HUNGER GAMES thing I've got to say this sounds like great news. You know, considering Arndt last penned the very respectable TOY STORY 3. Arndt will have to decide to sign on soon because Lionsgate have CATCHING FIRE tapped to start filming this Summer with all the original cast returning, including Jennifer Lawrence (below). So I'd say we can expect Arndt's decision sooner rather than later.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
With a release date of November 22, 2013 already tapped you can bet we'll be seeing plenty of CATCHING FIRE updates in the coming months so be on the lookout for that.
