Yay! Jennifer Lawrence is finally talking about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She sat down with 24 Frames for a short and to the point interview about the new Catching Fire as well as her movie ‘Serena’. Here is a little excerpt from the interview, but to read the full thing please visit their blog HERE!
Jennifer Lawrence– who of course plays Katniss Everdeen in said environment’s “Hunger Games” — thinks the film’s sequel will offer a certain verisimilitude.
“The new movie will be very real, which is what I’m excited about,” she told 24 Frames of “Catching Fire,” which Francis Lawrence will direct. “I really like his take, which is a lot of what I liked in Gary Ross,” she added. “It’s the realistic grasp of the story instead of all the details of the imaginary things.”
Lawrence said she’s met with the director and believes that, overall, he’s trying to continue what Ross started with his adaptation of the first book in the Suzanne Collins’ series. “He’s not trying to reinvent anything,” she said.
The actress begins shooting “Catching Fire” in the fall, with the movie set for a November 2013 release. In the meantime, the Oscar nominee will be seen as the object of other men’s affections.
We are getting beyond excited for this film already and it hasn’t even finished casting yet. (Hurry!! We are dying here!)
