Stuff that came up today, mainly. Not really part of the main series, but relates. Not filler, either, otherwise I’d have held on to it.
First up, Hunger Games news. The screenwriter, Simon Beaufoy, is already working on adapting Catching Fire, the second book in the series. He is working with Suzanne Collins, the author, on what needs to be kept and what can be dropped for time reasons. His goal is to make sure that the fans are satisfied with the final result. Once again, respecting the original work and the fans is showing up. Whether the movies are successful remains to be seen, though LiT will have a report.
Next, the trailer for Battleship is out. The movie looks decent enough, but might do better without being tied to the game. It could go the route of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li or it could be another G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Speaking of G.I. Joe, there’s a sequel coming. G.I. Joe: Retaliation will star Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson.
