Meanwhile, "Catching Fire" will shoot this fall, and is scheduled for release on November 22, 2013. The sequel has made several recent additions to its impressive cast, including Jena Malone and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tony Shalhoub.
Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are also reprising their "Hunger Games" roles.
The first "Hunger Games" has earned more than $400 million domestically since its March release.
