Fresh off his Emmy win, Danny Strong (“Game Change”), is set to write the film adaptation of “Mockingjay”, which is the last book in “The Hunger Games” trilogy. The film will be split into two parts. According to Variety.com, the first part is scheduled for release on Nov. 21, 2014, and the second part will open on Nov. 20, 2015.

Frankly, I don’t think it is necessary to split the final book into two films but it seems like this franchise is following the same trend as the Harry Potter and Twilight films.

An Overview of “The Hunger Games” Trilogy

"The Hunger Games" - Image via Wikipedia

“The Hunger Games” is the best-selling YA book series by Suzanne Collins.  The titles the make up the trilogy are “The Hunger Games”, “Catching Fire”, and “Mockingjay”. As a whole the series is quite gripping and it is definitely one of those series that draws you in, so much that you need to know how it ends.

To describe “The Hunger Games” trilogy think “Lord of the Flies” meets “Gladiator” with an essence of “Harry Potter” and “Percy Jackson”. The Heroine of the novel is Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year old girl, who basically is the “chosen one”. In a time where poverty is high, the Capitol, which is the governing body hosts annual games where children/teens compete from different Districts for food for their Districts and riches for their families. There only can be one winner, as they would be the sole survivor…literally. Also the competition is a reality show and each competitor, called tributes in the novel, gets their own team of stylists and coaches, whom all strategize to promote their tributes and try to keep them alive. While the competition is underway, the tributes who become popular may receive gifts from sponsors and these gifts received during the games can be the key(s) to their survival.
