Variety are reporting that Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns has been contemplating the future of the Hunger Games franchise, stating that it will “live on and on”.
Burns spoke at a conference yesterday, saying that younger generations missed the first to movies. Also, he refered that if they went backwards there would have public. This sounds like he is talking about prequels.
With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 currently leading a box office of $523 million, there is no surprise that Lionsgate would very much like to keep the project rolling. Eventhough, the last movies of the franchise haven't been making the same or more cash than the first one it appears that they are still confident to maybe keep on going.
Burns says that the prequels would maybe take them back into the "arena" which, let's face it, was the best thing that the franchise had to offer has we saw in the first two movies.
