It's been almost four years since the last "Hunger Games" movie came out. And the teens who were obsessed with Katniss Everdeen have moved on to more grown up pursuits.
That is, until they hear that Suzanne Collins is releasing a PREQUEL novel in May of next year, and yes, there WILL be a movie.
Wait. What? Suddenly they're back in 8th grade again.
And I guess that takes me back a bit too... because when my son read the Hunger Games novels, I read them. And I saw the movies. And much to my husband's chagrin, I still watch them whenever I come across them as I'm flipping through channels.
So yes, the kids are hungry for more Hunger Games. And so am I.
As for the prequel, the action is set 64 years before the original "Hunger Games", so no . . . no JENNIFER LAWRENCE. It'll take place around the 10th Hunger Games.
