It’s incredibly rare to see the sequels being greenlit before the first movie is released. It was expected that Lionsgate will look at the box office for “The Hunger Games” before deciding if they shall greenlit “Catching Fire”. The fact that they had greenlit “Catching Fire” before “The Hunger Games” is released speaks volumes on how much confidence Lionsgate has in “The Hunger Games” in regarding to being a success.

What do you think of this? Are you excited that “Catching Fire” is already greenlit? Do tell us in the comments below!
