‘The Hunger Games’ Sequel Gets 2013 Release Date… Is It the Next ‘Twilight’?

Lionsgate is still in the midst of shooting the first Hunger Games film and has quite some time to go till its release in March of next year. But they have already set the release date for the second Hunger Games movie, the second of the Suzanne Collins book series entitled Catching Fire. The studio announced on Monday that Catching Fire is set to release in theaters on November 22, 2013.

Lionsgate is not releasing any other details about Catching Fire, so it’s unclear as to who will direct and whether main stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth will be returning. The first Hunger Games flick will be released on March 23, 2012.

As a book series, Hunger Games has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States alone – and the movies have generated incredible enthusiasm among fans.
