The Hunger Games: Three Books, Four Movies?

The Hunger Games: Three Books, Four Movies?

Looks like Jennifer Lawrence will be playing Katniss Everdeen for a while…

According to Collider, the studio behind The Hunger Games film, Lionsgate, has confirmed that the book series will be four movies, instead of just three (one for each book).

After reading the series earlier, JJJ isn’t sure where to split the story within the binds. Where would you split it?

The Hunger Games official summary: Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games: a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy.

    Yuck Josh hutcherson is in this movie!!!! no thanks but he is nasty looking.

  • alice

    Aslong as they divide the first movie in 2 parts. The third was the worst/ most boring book of the series.

  • Celia

    I’m not even going to pretend to be surprised. Every book to film adaptation seems to be splitting a movie in two these days…I wonder where they got that idea from?

  • kemcco1955

    Ever since Harry Potter split everyone seems to do it.

  • adureh

    @kemcco1955: I know right? Even when it’s not necessary

  • adureh

    @alice: I kinda agree with you on the last book; it read as more of a plot for a book, an overview than it did an actual book.

  • Cassy

    Everyone obsessing over this will get tired of this eventually then. If they have any since, unlike twilight fans…

  • lauren

    how bout not making movies based off books?

  • Danni

    Well I loved the third book actually.
    But I really wish they wouldn’t split any book and stick to just 3 movies.

    What’s up with everybody splitting movies ??
    Three movies are fine !!!
    I just hope percy jackson won’t do the same…

  • Allie

    I think the split should be in the second book. They could end the second movie as Katniss finds out she will have to participate in the Quater Quell, and then add a few more scenes instead of cutting scenes, and then focus more on the life in distrec 12 after Peeta and Katniss won.

  • Chelsea

    Harry Potter should be the only movie allowed to be split. That last Potter book was intense and needed the splitting. Hunger games and Twilight? Not so much.

  • wynter

    if you want to split it its easy just split it in the second book right before the second hunger games in the series

  • wynter

    hey watch it amanda

  • wynter

    i defiantly agree with Danni about the third book
    i also agree with Allie if they want to split split like that
    Chelsea is right it should only be harry potter spliting
    Alice and adureh aren’t correct the third book is the best except for the part when prim dies
