‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay': First Photos of Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth on Set
Jennifer Lawrence has a busy schedule. ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire‘ hasn’t even hit theaters yet, and she’s already busy filming the third installment, ‘Mockingjay, Part 1,’ in Atlanta and will presumably go right into production on ‘Part 2′ shortly after. Photos from the set have already leaked out, so take your first glimpse at the third chapter in the film series.
‘Catching Fire’ director Francis Lawrence returns to helm ‘Mockingjay,’ which is based on the third and final novel of Suzanne Collins’ trilogy. In the tradition of the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, the last installment of ‘The Hunger Games’ will be split into two parts — the first, ‘Mockingjay – Part 1,’ to be released on November 21, 2014, and the second, ‘Part 2,’ to hit theaters November 20, 2015.
‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ picks up after ‘Catching Fire,’ which sees Katniss leading the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance. The first photos from the set feature Jennifer Lawrence and her co-star Liam Hemsworth (Gale) in what is presumably [POTENTIAL SPOILER] District 13, the home base of the rebels once thought to be destroyed by the Capitol.
‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1′ will also bring back a slew of franchise mainstays, like Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson, but will also add into the mix Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Lily Rabe, Elden Henson, Stef Dawson, Evan Ross, Kim and Misty Ormiston, Patina Miller, Wes Chatham, Omid Abtahi and Mahershala Ali.
As for Lawrence, you can see her in ‘American Hustle,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ and ‘Dumb and Dumber 2,’ and is in talks to star in ‘East of Eden‘ and ‘Burial Rights‘ for her first ‘Hunger Games’ director Gary Ross.
