Lionsgate Looking At Slumdog Writer To Pen Hunger Games Sequel

Deadline reports that Lionsgate is moving quickly on the buzz from the recent Hunger Games trailer and are already looking at writers for the sequel. The next book in the series titled Catching Fire will likely be the installment to be adapted. They say the studio is looking at screenwriter Simon Beaufoy who is best known for Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours. I'm sure the studio is waiting until the first film's release to move any further than the script phase. However, it's been Lionsgate's original plan to make a trilogy.
