Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland, among others, the follow-up will see heroine Katniss Everdeen (Lawrence) and fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Hutcherson) being forced to return for a special anniversary edition of the Hunger Games after Panem's citizens rise up in rebellion against the Capitol.
Production is slated to wrap in late December.
