Some of the greatest movies started out as books. As fans of The Hunger Games series, we can’t wait to see how the first book is adapted for film. And as fans we also hope that the movie will stay faithful to the book.
HollywoodLife.com spoke to an insider who has read the script for The Hunger Games movie to report that “fans will be so happy!” Apparently it even contains some back-story that could pave the way to a prequel series.
The insider tells HollywoodLife.com:
“I think ‘Hunger Games’ fans will be thrilled with the script of the new movie, it stays very true to the book. Suzanne was very involved in the process and made sure the movie didn’t stray from her original ideas.”
“The movie goes into a little bit more of the background story of how the Hunger Games first came about. [Suzanne Collins] isn’t giving away too much but is providing information to whet people’s appetites over when the districts were first formed, and the initial revolution.”
I know I’d love to know a bit more about the history of Panem, about the intial revolutionary attempts which led the Capitol to create the Hunger Games in the first place. With Suzanne Collins writing the screenplay for the movie and staying involved in the whole movie process, we should expect to see a faithful rendition for the film.
I know I can’t wait to see The Hunger Games movie. I’d also love to see a prequel, even if it doesn’t involve Katniss, Peeta and Gale. What do you think?
