Hunger spelen blir fyra filmer!

Lionsgate säger att man kan "förvänta sig stora saker av 'The Hunger Games'" och att serien kommer att bli fyra actionfilmer. Det här innebär att det är helt säkert att både "Catching Fire" och "Mockingjay" kommer att bli film! Däremot vill de inte ge någon information om ifall det är "Mockingjay" kommer att delas upp i två delar eller kommer det bli på något annat sätt.

Jag känner att "Mockingjay" kan behöva delas upp i två delar, eftersom det händer så mycket i den och jag vill inte att det ska kännas som om de har försökt mosa in allt.

"Hunger Games" will provide a feast for Lionsgate, execs say

Lionsgate executives told Wall Street analysts this morning to expect big things from "The Hunger Games", a series of four action films that the studio will release from the trilogy written by Suzanne Collins. COO Joe Drake said it was "the highest selling film we've ever had" at the Cannes Film Festival and that overseas exhibitors consider it "the movie that can change their company." Although Lionsgate wouldn't disclose its budget for the films, Drake says "Hunger Games" could become an "outsized success" for Lionsgate. The studio says it bought the rights before the books became runaway best-sellers, and it has "retained the majority of the upside" in its talent and distribution deals.

On other matters following the company's earnings report yesterday, Lionsgate says that it isn't concerned about the public's waning interest in 3D. "We never thought of 3D as a one-size-fits all solution to the movie business," CEO Jon Feltheimer says. He added that Lionsgate's recent deal to syndicate re-runs of "Mad Men" to Netflix reflects his view that Internet streaming services can be "partners, not adversaries." He hopes to "replicate these kinds of deals around the world." He also told analysts to expect financial growth over the next year at Lionsgate's struggling TV Guide Network cable channel. The company says it just renewed its carriage deal with Time Warner Cable and expects the channel to be in 80% of all pay TV homes by year end. Lionsgate says that the channel's split screen, to meld programming with a listings guide, "tarnished" it. But its new full screen version is delivering higher ratings on DirecTV and Dish Network. Feltheimer also hinted at the possibility that the channel may be sold. He told analysts to expect an announcement "in the near future" about an effort to simplify its business. Investors "will be pleased" he said.

Bekräftelse från Lionsgate [från TheHobOrg]:

We can confirm we have a deal that encompasses four (4) movies for "The Hunger Games".

When we responded back to inquire if one of the books would be split, or if there was a potential for a prequel, we received this response.

We cannot confirm any details beyond the below at this time.
