Ahhhh!! The once suicidal Jonathan from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, AKA Danny Strong is all grown up…
And he's been chosen
as tribute to pen the screenplay for the last two films in the Hunger Games series!
The Emmy award winning writer/executive producer of HBO's Game Change now has the daunting task of splitting Mockingjay, the final book in the HG trilogy, into two parts.
As we all know, Hollywood likes to squeeze every last cent out of their book-to-film franchises, (Twilight, Harry Potter), so luckily for fans, we get two servings of Mockingjay pie!
As of now, the last two films are set to hit theaters Nov. 21, 2014 and Nov. 20, 2015, respectively.
We are SO excited by this news!! We've no doubt Danny is the perfect mix of mega-talent and nerd to pull a major fantasy/sci-fi franchise flick like this off!!
BTVS super geeks out there, aren't you feeling the tingles! We're so proud of him!!!
