‘The Hunger Games’ Star Josh Hutcherson Talks About Upcoming ‘Catching Fire’ [AUDIO]
What’s The First Thing To Say To Gale In The Next Movie?
“It’s weird because Gale and I really don’t have interaction with one another. It’s like an unspoken tension between the two of them. There is some confusion, because what’s happened is Peeta has confessed his real love for Katniss, and Katniss has played along with it, and Peeta finds out that she’s just doing it just for show, and that’s hurtful to one. It’s very heartbreaking!”
When Do You Start Filming “Catching Fire?”
“We do not know yet. They just started writing the script recently. They hired Simon Beaufoy who wrote “Slumdog Millionnaire” to do the first draft. So that’s going to be great. Gary Ross is an extremely talented director and writer so I think he’s going to get in there with Simon and work on the script with him. They have a release date of November of next year. So we’re working towards that date. We’re probably going to start shooting sometime end of summer or beginning of fall this year.”
Have You Talked To Jennifer [Lawrence] or Liam [Hemsworth] Since The Opening?
“Yeah, but we haven’t even talked about the opening. I text with Jennifer about basketball because she’s a Louisville fan and I’m a U.K. fan. The only really conversation we’ve had was about The Final Four at this point. It’s one of those things where we all know what’s up with the movie. So let’s talk about other things.”
