'Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes' Star Teases 'No-Brainer' Return to 'The Hunger Games' Franchise

Tom Blyth is keen on digging more into the story of his character Coriolanus Snow, gushing that 'it'd be fascinating to see his continued rise to power.'

AceShowbiz - Actors and filmmakers involved in "The Hunger Games" franchise have expressed interest in continuing the cinematic saga, sparking speculation about potential spin-offs and sequels.

With the success of "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes", the prequel film to the popular dystopian series, fans are eager to know if the franchise will expand further. Tom Blyth, who portrayed a young Coriolanus Snow in the prequel, has openly stated that he would be delighted to return to the role, both as the lead or a supporting character.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. It'd be a no-brainer," Blyth said. "But it would be really cool to keep digging into that story, and I do think fans feel this too. I think they were very excited to reignite the world, and I think people feel like within that reigniting, there's more to do. There are more stories to delve into."

He added, "I do think there's more to Coriolanus' story to delve into, whether he's the lead character or whether he's a periphery character and we look at someone else's story. But I think it'd be fascinating to see his continued rise to power and what happens along the way."

Director Francis Lawrence, who helmed "The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes" and the original "Hunger Games" films, has hinted at the possibility of more chapters in the franchise, but only if author Suzanne Collins is involved.

"If Suzanne has another thematic idea that she feels fits into the world of Panem, I'd be really interested in looking at it and being a part of it," Lawrence said.

Other cast members from the original trilogy have also expressed interest in revisiting their roles. Josh Hutcherson, who played Peeta Mellark, would be on board for a return, but only if the entire original cast, including Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, were involved.

Meanwhile, Sam Claflin, who portrayed Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", believes he may be too old to reprise the role, but he is open to returning as Finnick's father in a prequel.

"I've heard rumors that people are asking for a Finnick prequel, and all I'm gonna say is that I would be all in for Finnick's dad," Claflin said.

"The Hunger Games" franchise has captivated audiences with its complex themes and relatable characters. With the cast and creators expressing their enthusiasm for continuing the story, fans can cautiously anticipate the possibility of more adventures within the dystopian world of Panem.
