The actress could have a point, since Mockingjay Part 2 didn't quite meet expectations. Back in July 2012, just months after the first Hunger Games debuted in blockbuster fashion, Lionsgate confirmed that the third novel in Suzanne Collins' trilogy would be split into a two-part movie. That strategy didn't exactly pay off the way the studio had hoped, with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 opening to a franchise-low $102.6 million last month, taking in $227.3 million in three weeks. While the final installment is on pace to be the lowest-grossing movie in the lucrative franchise, the numbers are still high enough for the studio to be prepping Hunger Games prequels.
Michael Burns said that many fans missed the actual Hunger Games themselves from the first two movies, which were the highest-grossing in the franchise, so developing prequels would be an easy way to bring the story back into the arena. However last month, Francis Lawrence, who directed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, said he isn't sure fans would want to see these deadly games unfold again, especially since they will have already known the outcome. The filmmaker did add that he would come back for another sequel, but only if Suzanne Collins was involved in creating a story that continued the franchise in some way.Read More

With her final performance as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 just over one month away, Jennifer Lawrence has signed on to star in an untitled mystery project with director Darren Aronofsky. Variety reports that this project doesn't have a distributor lined up yet, but the filmmaker has been reaching out to actors, in hopes of getting production started this spring. The actress is currently shooting the sci-fi drama Passengers, but she will have plenty of time to shoot the Jennifer Lawrence/Darren Aronofsky Project next year, now that she has completed work on both The Hunger Games and X-Men franchises, which wraps up with next year's X-Men: Apocalypse.
Jennifer Lawrence has a number of projects in various stages of development, but nothing has been given the green light to start production yet.
