Hunger Games To Become Four Films?

Boy wizards with a messiah complex can do it. Vegan emo vampires with sexuality issues can do it. Now, a bunch of teens fighting to the death in a nationally televised sport may get the opportunity.

Should “The Hunger Games” be a success, Lionsgate have already stated they have plans to adapt all three books in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy of novels. Today though they have confirmed with The Hob that, much like ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’ before them, the series will run one film longer than the book series. Four films from three books in other words.

It’s not specified if the last two films will evenly split the third novel “Mockingjay”, or if the three sequels will divide it and the second book “Catching Fire” between them. General consensus seems to be the third book is the weakest of the three, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.
