Lionsgate exploring possibility of 'Hunger Games' prequels

Los Angeles: Entertainment Company Lionsgate is evaluating the probabilities of prequels to the "Hunger Games" franchise.

Comparing "Hunger Games" to "Harry Potter" franchise, Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns said it will "live on and on and on," reported Aceshowbiz.

According to him "The Hunger Games" and "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" contained arenas, where the 74th and 75th versions of the Hunger Games competitions took place, but the second two did not.

"The one thing that kids say they missed (from the early Hunger Games films) was there were no arenas. If we went backwards, there obviously would be arenas," Burns said.
