Natalie Dormer on ‘The Hunger Games’ prequel: It would have to come from Suzanne Collins


Recently, Jennifer Lawrence weighed-in on the idea of The Hunger Games prequels and called it “too soon.”

Co-star Natalie Dormer, however, told Entertainment Weekly that she may consider returning to Panem, but only with the books’ author Suzanne Collins on-board.

“I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination,” Dormer told EW, “and everything that is the success of The Hunger Games, the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne. She wrote such a complex world and yet at the same time had so many scenes that deal with all the things we’re struggling with with our own time and zeitgeist.”

“So I’m just a huge fan of Suzanne Collins and her writing, and I think [Hunger Games producer] Nina Jacobson and [director] Francis Lawrence have both talked about this, but anything prequel, sequel, whatever would have to come from her and her penmanship,” Dormer added. “So the minute I know that Suzanne is writing something, then yes, my ears would prick up. Almost definitely.”

It’s no secret that here at HGN we have diverse opinion on the prequels. However, with Suzanne writing the story, we could get behind this idea.

What do you think?

  1. I very much want to see the story expanded in both directions, past and future–but carefully, truthfully. That means definitely having Suzanne’s involvement, even if she doesn’t write another whole book. Thumbs-up, Natalie.


  2. I agree 110% with Natalie. All the Hunger Games “magic” so to speak was because of Suzanne and her alone. Lions does not have the creativity on its own to produce something so good. So, please, leave it to Suzanne or leave it be.
