For quite some time there has been a prequel to The Tributes of Panem in the room. Now
Studio Lionsgate has announced that a prequel novel by author Suzanne Collins will be
published in May next year. But that's not the only thing, because as Lionsgate boss Joe
Drake announced to the Associated Press, the studio is looking forward to working closely
with the author on a film. He didn't comment on the exact date, but it's considered certain
that a prequel film will come.
The plot will take place 64 years before the events of the books and film adaptations, so it
has to be classified after the so-called dark days and therefore takes place in the period in
which the Hunger Games were introduced for the first time. Therefore a cast return is not to
be counted on, since this would not work regarding the timeline. Details about the release
date are probably not to be expected this year.
