However, after Lucy Gray defiantly singing during the reaping ceremony, Snow believes he may be able to turn the odds in their favor. "
Francis Lawrence, who previously directed Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part One, and Mockingjay Part Two, will play the script on Tuesday. Suzanne Collins''s novel of the same name was first released in 2020.
In the pre-production, a recent update claimed that progress on the film was "very, really good."
