Note 2: The first film in this Suzanne Collins trilogy, "The Hunger Games" used the working title of "Artemis". According to the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Commission, "Catching Fire" is using the working title "The Idiom". A working title is the temporary name of a film used during its development. Working titles are used primarily for two reasons - the first being that an official title has not yet been decided upon and the working title is being used as a filler for naming purposes, the second being to intentionally disguise the production of a high profile film. In some cases a working title may ultimately be used as the official title. This "title ruse" is now a very common practice by which these high-profile films or television series is given a fake working title to keep its production a secret, and to prevent price gouging by suppliers, casual theft and undesirable attention. The working title for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is subject to change.

The second film in The Hunger Games series, "Catching Fire", is now in production and casting for the film's extras is ongoing. Casting has been underway in Los Angeles for new co-starring and supporting roles. The day players, extras, photo doubles, and stand-ins are being hired in the Atlanta, GA area where shooting is taking place. Additional casting will take place on the Hawaiian Islands of Oahu and Kauai, and possibly in North Carolina. The studio is fast tracking this project because Jennifer Lawrence has a contract commitment with 20th Century Fox for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" which starts shooting in late January 2013. Filming on "Catching Fire" began on September 4, 2012 and runs through January 15, 2013.

Vienna, Austria born filmmaker Francis Lawrence is directing "Catching Fire" from an adapted screenplay rewritten by Academy Award winner Michael Arndt (from original drafts by Simon Beaufoy). Lawrence took over directing duties from Gary Ross, who co-wrote the screenplay and directed the first film in this series, "The Hunger Games". Ross stated that he would not have the time needed to write and prep the movie the way he would have wanted to because of the fixed and tight production schedule. Ross has stayed on board as one of the producers.

Francis Lawrence is known for directing countless music videos for such artists as Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and Avril Lavigne. His feature film directing credits are "Constantine" starring Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, and Shia LaBeouf; "I Am Legend" starring Will and Willow Smith; "Water for Elephants" starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson. Lawrence finished directing the ABC pilot "Gotham" in New York on April, 2012.

Writer Michael Arndt's first produced screenplay "Little Miss Sunshine" earned him an Academy Award for Best Writing, Original Screenplay. In 2012 he was nominated for a Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay Academy Award for "Toy Story 3". In addition to "Catching Fire," Arndt is also writing the screenplay for the Walt Disney Pictures feature film "Phineas and Ferb" starring Ashley Tisdale and Alyson Stoner to be released July 26, 2013. "Catching Fire" is based on the second book in a trilogy by author Suzanne Collins.

The "The Hunger Games" budget was estimated at $78 million, and the film has grossed over $619 million worldwide as of May 6, 2012. The movie was released on March 23, 2012. After two days of release, it became the studio's highest grossing film ever. "Catching Fire" is scheduled to hit theaters on Friday November 22, 2013. The third novel in the series "Mockingjay" will be filmed back-to-back and released as two separate films. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" will be released in theaters on November 21, 2014. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" will arrive on November 20, 2015.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. "Catching Fire" continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and the fictional, futuristic nation of Panem. Due to events that occurred in "The Hunger Games", a rebellion against the ruling Capitol has begun, and Katniss and fellow tribute Peeta are forced to return to the arena. They help each other to survive. As a matter of fact, they want the other one to survive more than they do themselves. After overpowering the first rebellion, the Capitol sets up rules in order to restrict and control the citizens' lives. There are now "new" rules that cause Katniss and Peeta to be in danger once again. More "Peacekeepers" are placed in districts to smash any hope that the citizens began to have.
