Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games adventure books may only have been a trilogy (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) But producers of the movies said today (Tuesday) that they’re turning the series into a quadrilogy by breaking the final book, Mockingjay, into two parts. While no sequel is planned for this year, Lionsgate has set Nov. 22, 2013 for the release of Catching Fire. It then plans to release The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 on November 21, 2014, followed by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 on November 20, 2015. Reporting on the studio’s decision, Entertainment Weekly said on its website, “This is just the latest example of Hollywood taking the ax to a golden goose in an effort to double their success rates and extend the film series … [and yield] two golden geese.”
