Lionsgate is already starting to get antsy with Catching Fire, the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy and sequel to the upcoming The Hunger Games movie.

According to reports, Lionsgate wants Simon Beaufoy to write the sequel. Beaufoy has written Slumdog Millionaire and more recently 127 Hours.

While director of The Hunger Games, Gary Ross, and author Suzanne Collins co-wrote the first movie, production has taken too much time for producers to wait on the sequel.

This haste has come from the recently released trailer. Just the awesome and epic trailer released earlier this week.

As reported earlier, The Hunger Games is going to be huge and Lionsgate doesn't want to waste time.

The film is loaded with talent including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and the Lenny Kravitz.

The movie premieres March 23, 2012 and be on the lookout for Catching Fire soon after!

    GEEZ isn't this the reason the Twilight movies got worse and worse…they rushed everything and the movies sucked because of it…Hunger Games as huge potential and it's worth the wait to let Collins do the co-writing…I really hope this doesnt turn out the way it's looking…Catching Fire is my favorite of the series and deserves to be done justice!!!
