After taking over from Gary Ross on ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Francis Lawrence was immediately signed to do both Mockingjay: Part 1 and 2 as well.   In a new interview with MTV, Lawrence talks about his plans for ‘Mockingjay’, and what he’s excited to see in ‘Catching Fire’.

He first talks about any book to film changes in ‘Catching Fire’ that might affect fans, but he says, “I would say that it’s a really faithful adaptation. You know, whenever you're adapting something that’s a 12- or 14-hour read down to something that has to be around two hours, there’s going to be some cuts. We definitely made some cuts. I don’t want to go into that, but we did it with Suzanne, and I would say that it’s very, very faithful. We tried to get as much as we could in there."
He also talks about scenes he’s proud of in the film, saying, “You know one of the very first things we shot that I like quite a lot is, there is sort of a goodbye before she goes into the arena with Liam that I like a lot. And it was actually—we shot it because we needed summer foliage and summer flowers and things like that. We actually shot it while we were in prep. Very first thing we sort of went out into the meadow, out in the mountains in north Georgia and shot this sequence over three or four hours or so, and I really like it. I think it’s really nice. Jennifer and Liam are really good in it. It’s very nice."
Finally, he reveals that planning for ‘Mockinjay’ has already begun, saying, “Nina, John, Suzanne and I have gone through the book and created the beat sheets for it. And started going through all that and at least marking our initial ideas of what the moments would be and how it all breaks down. And Danny Strong, who’s writing the first one, is working now. So yeah, we’ve actually done a fair amount of work. We're starting to think about where we could shoot it and all of that."
Mockingjay will be split into two different movies, Part 1 and Part 2
