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 on 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."
