You might remember when we first saw pictures of Jennifer Lawrence with Catching Fire director, Francis Lawrence. They looked awkward and I guess it made many of us wonder if Jen was disappointed that someone else was taking on The Hunger Games sequel.
Well it seems if she did have any misgivings, she’s put them behind her now. Jennifer has had a chat to Entertainment Weekly about her filming schedule and how she feels about getting back into filming Catching Fire:
How much time off did you have between shooting The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook?
About two weeks, which was nuts. But I wasn’t running up and down mountains on this, so it actually did feel like kind of a vacation. Like, wait, I just have to talk to this person? I don’t have to shoot them with a bow and arrow?
Do you feel ready to dig deep into Catching Fire?
I feel like we’re going back for our sophomore year. And [director] Francis Lawrence is absolutely brilliant and I love what he’s done with the script, so I’m happy to work with him.
