Last November, fans saw the Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, and Lionsgate said that there may be more instalents of the franchise. “The film opened an endless series of possibilities that Suzanne can go, and that [Lionsgate] can go with her,” Adam Fogelson, chairman of the studio’s motion picture group, was quoted as saying to Variety said at the time.

Francis Lawrence is in talks to direct.
