Lionsgate motion picture group Co-chairman Patrick Wachsberger announced in an interview that the last two films of The Hunger Games series will be filmed back-to-back.
Although no director has been selected for the two planned films to be adapted from “Mockingjay,” the third book in the “Hunger Games” trilogy, Wachsberger said that the two movies, to be released in November 2014 and 2015, will be shot together.
Because of that, Wachsberger said, “we expect the average budget [for the ‘Mockingjay’ movies] to be slightly lower than ‘Catching Fire.'” And with lower costs, he added, “profitability should come up with the final two installments.”
