It is going to be a prequel that focuses on young President Snow.

It is time to go back to Panem, but you won’t be following the adventures of the beloved Katniss anymore. Suzanne Collins, the author of the series, is writing a prequel titled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes which focuses on 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow during the 10th annual Hunger Games. His character will be different than what we have seen of him in the series. Young Snow is seen as friendly and charming, far from the ruthless leader he becomes.

The film will be made under Lionsgate and Francis Lawrence is going to be directing the film. Lawrence previously directed Catching Fire and parts one and two of Mocking Jay. The book will be released on May 19th and there is no date for the movie yet. You can read an excerpt from the novel on Entertainment Weekly.

The Hunger Games films were released starting in 2012. They starred Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. The screenwriter, Michael Arndt, and producer, Nina Jacobson, form these films will also be part of the new prequel.

May the odds be over in your favor.
