When Gary Ross decided not to return to direct "The Hunger Games" sequel, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" some wondered if Lionsgate would tap one director for the remaining three films, or if they would instead choose a fresh helmer for each.

Well, it has been confirmed that Frances Lawrence ("I am Legend", "Constantine"), who is currently in production on "Catching Fire", will also direct "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" and "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2".

Danny Strong will pen the scripts for both part 1 and 2 of "Mockingjay" with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth all reprising their roles.


"Mockingjay" follows heroine Katniss Everdeen's journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” opens in AMC Theatres on November 22, 2013.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” will open in AMC Theaters on November 21, 2014 with “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” following on November 20, 2015.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
