Lionsgate Films is still finding a way to keep "The Hunger Games" franchise alive beyond its fourth film. While the book ends with "Mockingjay", the studio is eying for more sequels and possible prequels.
Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirms this when telling analysts, as quoted by Deadline, that he's "actively looking at some development and thinking about prequel and sequel possibilities" for the "Hunger Games" franchise.
The movie series will conclude with "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2" which is due November 21 in the U.S. The original stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth are back as Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne respectively. It will be presented in IMAX 3D.
IMAX Entertainment CEO Greg Foster says "the fan enthusiasm and cultural impact that the series has generated has been truly remarkable and we are thrilled to offer audiences the opportunity to experience the last chapter in IMAX 3D."
In related news, Lionsgate has announced that it will team up with Imagine Exhibitions to launch "The Hunger Games: The Exhibition" on July 1 at Discovery Times Square. To run through January 3, 2016, the exhibition will feature "high-tech interactive galleries, never before seen content, hundreds of costumes and props."
