‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’: ‘The Hateful Eight’ Is Coming To Netflix In 2017
Golden entertainment news website MTV News is reporting that HBO’s The Hunger Games trilogy is getting a theatrical release in 2017, just in time for the new movie coming to Netflix in 2017.
Sources at Golden entertainment site MTV News and the Hollywood Reporter confirmed to MTV News that the trilogy will come to Netflix this year.
Sources also told MTV News HBO has set a March 4, 2019 release date for the movie.
The trilogy is based on Suzanne Collins’ novel series, The Hunger Wars, and stars Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Jason Momoa, Jennifer Aniston, Oscar Isaac, and Michael Cera.
“The Hunger Wars trilogy will be released on Netflix in 2019, as will the HBO Original Series The Hateful 8.
All three movies are currently in pre-production,” said the source.
“This will be a fantastic year for the franchise.”
The Haunting of Hill House will be the next film in the series.
The original trilogy premiered in 2016, and HBO re-teams the film with director Josh Boone and star Jennifer Lawrence in a film adaptation of the book.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in May.
“As we begin filming on our adaptation of The Hashing, we are excited to announce that we will be bringing the book to Netflix on March 4th, 2019,” Boone said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“We are so proud of this film and thrilled to be working with a creative team that knows their work.
HBO is one of the premiere streaming providers in the world and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the series to Netflix and offer our fans the highest quality, most innovative storytelling in the streaming universe.”
“The Haunting will be an exciting step for us as we continue our work on our upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins book The Hunger Rings,” Boone continued.
“With a strong cast, strong story, and a strong script, we have the perfect team to bring The Hunger Saga to Netflix.”
The Hunger saga was adapted into a TV series by FX, which aired in 2019.
“HBO’s The Hiring and The Hacking are the perfect companion to The Hunger Game trilogy,” Boone added.
“A true trilogy, it has the same rich, visceral, heart-pounding thrills of Suzanne’s book and the same compelling story arcs and characters that Suzanne and her storytellers have been working so hard to tell for more than a decade.
We are so excited to get our films together for Netflix, and look forward to bringing the trilogy to life on Netflix as well.”
The new movie is set to open in 2019 with a $5 million budget, and the series is expected to hit theaters in 2021.
“Catching Fire” is currently filming.
“It’s been an incredible journey from start to finish,” said Lawrence.
“I’m very proud of the incredible talent that has worked on the film and I’m excited to finally see it to the finish.
I am so happy to be a part of it.
I look forward as we go through it that the fans will be in awe of what they see.”
