Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) is in talks to re-write the script for Lionsgate‘s upcoming sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire. The initial drafts of the script were penned by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). Arndt previously received an Oscar for his screenplay of Little Miss Sunshine so Lionsgate definitely seems to be going after a well-known and well-received crew for Catching Fire. He will have to get to work quickly as production for Catching Fire is slated to start in August and the star of the series, Jennifer Lawrence, has a commitment with the sequel to X-Men: First Class so there can’t be many delays and production has to go quick for Catching Fire. Stay tuned for more news on Catching Fire and see it in theaters on November 22, 2013.
