Lionsgate Still Plans “Hunger Games” Prequels

With their two great cash cows of “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” seemingly over, and with no real successors in the wings at present, Lionsgate needs to either reboot or continue said properties quick smart or see some major drops in their revenue streams.

Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns appeared at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference in New York today and confirmed that the “Hunger Games” franchise “will live on and on”.

The studio previously said they’re still looking at continuing the franchise with prequels, and Burns confirmed that – noting that younger viewers missed the arena aspect of the first two films in the latter two movies – “if we went backwards there obviously would be arenas.”

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” has earned over $524 million worldwide at this point.
