They are prepping for the sequel, though ‘The Hunger Games’ is still due for its release in the United States until March 23, 2012.

Simon has emerged as the top choice of the movie director Gary Ross and the producers Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik. However, the formal talks between the parties have taken, but Lionsgate is pushing hard to rope in Beaufoy for the project. As per the reports Gary Ross the director of ‘The Hunger games’ will be returning to helm the sequel ‘Catching Fire’. The reports also suggested that, Gary originally wanted to scribe for the sequel along with Suzanne Collins, but the busy schedule of ‘The Hunger games;’ forced him to step back.

The story of ‘The Hunger Games’ focuses on Katniss Everdeen who replaces her younger sister in a fight to the death event, which would be televised live. Despite her perseverance Katniss has to make choices to survive against humanity and the life against love, to win the games and get back to home. Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz, Wes Bentley, Donald Sutherland and Paula Malcomson are the star cast of ‘The Hunger Games’ besides Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence.
