Lionsgate has confirmed that a prequel to the Hunger Games franchise is officially in the works, which will be directed by none other than Francis Lawrence.

The plot follows the story of a younger version of President Coriolanus Snow who gets chosen to be a mentor for the 10th Hunger Games. He is described as “a teenager born to privilege but searching for something more, a far cry from the man we know he will become. Here, he’s friendly. He’s charming. And, for now anyway, he’s a hero,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

Collins will “write the film’s treatment” and will serve as an executive producer. She stated: “Lionsgate has always been the cinematic home of The Hunger Games, and I’m delighted to be returning to them with this new book.”
