As we reported previously, Josh Hutcherson and his The Hunger Games co-star Jena Malone worked on Canon’s Project Imagination winner The Rusted.
People.com caught up with the actor where they talk about the project and more. Josh also elaborates on wrapping up The Hunger Games and keeping in touch with his co-stars.
What was it like working with Jena Malone on this project?
It was great. It was really different. Hunger Games is a very big movie and it had a lot of days and a lot of crew. Jenna (sic) and I didn’t have a whole lot of time together in scenes. I have respected Jenna’s (sic) work for many years. She’s done a great job over her career, so to get to work with her in a setting where we both got to push ourselves as actors was really fun. To have it be somebody that you’re comfortable with makes it a lot easier for sure.
What are your feelings now that playing Peeta and the whole Hunger Games universe is coming to a close?
It’s a mixed feeling, because there’s a big part of me that doesn’t want it to end. These movies are so fun, and the cast and the crew were my creative family over the past four years. But there’s another part of me that has a sense of accomplishment and excitement of what’s coming up next. I’m optimistic for what’s to come.
Did you guys make plans to keep in touch and see each other?
Yeah we do. We’re very close, of course everyone is in different parts of the world filming, but we find a way to make connections. We’ve definitely talked about Hunger Games reunions and crew vacations. We’re not letting this end.
