The director of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Francis Lawrence has had a chat to SciFiNow. They managed to ask him about a few of the details in the movie including a spinning Cornucopia and added scenes with Gale, played by Liam Hemsworth.
“There is a moment we have in the arena when the gamemaker starts to spin the cornucopia, and I’m very proud of that,” Lawrence said. “We designed a very cool sequence and created a spinning island, and that’s going to be very, very cool. So that’s kind of fun and very unique. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Here’s what he had to say about extra scenes for Gale:
“One of the very first things we shot was a sort of goodbye before Katniss goes into the arena that I like a lot,” Lawrence said. “We actually shot it while we were in prep. We went out into a meadow, out in the mountains in north Georgia and shot this sequence over three or four hours, and I really like it.”
But before we all freak out, Francis Lawrence says fans can feel assured that the movie will be faithful to the book.
“It’s a really faithful adaptation,” he told SciFiNow. “We definitely made some cuts, but we did it with Suzanne [Collins, author], and I would say that it’s very, very faithful.”
