Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games, has also confirmed that he’s on board for Catching Fire.
He told E! E! Online they might start filming next fall:
“They want to wait and see how this comes out and does and how much fans like it, and then hopefully we’re going to start on the next one next fall,” Josh Hutcherson told us at the People’s Choice Awards in L.A.
But are Hutcherson’s Hunger Games costars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth on board for another flick?
“Oh, for sure,” he said. “What I’ve seen of the first one I’m in love with, so I’m on board for however many they want to make.”
Hutcherson says he hasn’t seen the final cut of the flick. “I’ve seen little bits,” he dished.
