In the present day, Scholastic introduced that Suzanne Collins will launch a brand new Starvation Video games prequel novel subsequent spring. Appropriately, Lionsgate can also be trying to increase upton its $three billion greenback film franchise, with the studio revealing that it’s going to proceed to “work carefully with [Collins] on the film” adaptation.
Due out on Might 19th, 2020, the brand new e book takes place 64 years earlier than her Starvation Video games trilogy, specializing in the failed rebel in Panem. As such, the brand new novel will make no point out of younger teen protagonists, like Katniss Everdeen (performed within the motion pictures by Jennifer Lawrence), from her unique, wildly standard sequence.
“With this e book, I needed to discover the state of nature, who we’re, and what we understand is required for our survival,” Collins stated. “The reconstruction interval 10 years after the battle, generally known as the Darkish Days — because the nation of Panem struggles again to its toes — gives fertile floor for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby outline their views of humanity.”
As soon as Scholastic releases the brand new Starvation Video games prequel, the movie adaptation will probably comply with on its heels. Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate Movement Image Group, stated in a press release, “Because the proud residence of the Starvation Video games motion pictures, we are able to hardly anticipate Suzanne’s subsequent e book to be revealed. We’ve been speaking along with her in the course of the writing course of and we sit up for persevering with to work carefully along with her on the film.”
