The Hunger Gameshas only been open for a few days, but the team is already prepping for the sequel ‘Catching Fire‘.  Director Gary Ross dished on his plans for the next installment:

Warning: mild spoilers if you haven’t read the books!!

“The arena in the second book is tropical and the arena in [the first] book is forests, so that in and of itself will make for a different wardrobe on the part of the crew.

“In terms of the cinematic differences in the way I might shoot the movie, I shot this in a very specific way that’s very different than most franchises are shot, obviously, and that had a lot to do with the urgency of what’s going on and Katniss’ point of view,” he continued. “I have some ideas about how to do ‘Catching Fire’ slightly differently, but I don’t want to share them yet. Not because I’m being evasive, but just because they’re not fully baked. But yes, I think it will look and feel slightly different from the first.”

The next movie will start filming in Fall and is due out in November of 2013.  That feels TOO far away, doesn’t it?  But that’s the price we pay if you want a GOOD film, right?!
