‘The Hunger Games’ Prequel ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ Starts Filming Next Year

The Hunger Games book series by Suzanne Collins took the world by storm, and the movies that came after launched Jennifer Lawrence’s career as Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire.

The four movies, based on Collins’ trilogy earned more than US$3 billion worldwide. This success guaranteed that more stories in the universe would be told, including the upcoming prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.
