Los Angeles, Dec 22 (IANS) “The Hunger Games” actress Natalie Dormer has revealed that she would reprise her role as the rebel Cressida if a prequel to the film is planned, only if original author Suzanne Collins gets involved in the project.
“I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination and everything that is the success of The Hunger Games, the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne,” Dormer told ew.com.
“She wrote such a complex world and yet at the same time had so many scenes that deal with all the things we’re struggling with with our own time and zeitgeist,” she added.
Dormer also confessed that she is a “huge fan” of Collins and “her writing”.
“So I’m just a huge fan of Suzanne Collins and her writing, and I think (‘The Hunger Games’ producer) Nina Jacobson and (director) Francis Lawrence have both talked about this, but anything prequel, sequel, whatever would have to come from her and her penmanship,” she added.
“So the minute I know that Suzanne is writing something, then yes, my ears would prick up. Almost definitely.”
Rumours about a follow-up to “The Hunger Games” came in after the final installment, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2”, was released.
Lionsgate vice chairman Michael Burns expressed desire to do a prequel when he said during a recent conference that he hoped the franchise would “live on and on and on.”
