Jennifer Lawrence Says She’s ‘Totally’ Open to Playing Her ‘Hunger Games’ Role Again


Jennifer Lawrence is more than willing to reignite the flames to play the “Girl on Fire” once again and her fans are here for it.

While promoting her upcoming comedy No Hard Feelings on Friday, the 32-year-old actress told Variety that she would be “totally” open to reprising her fan-favorite role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Gamesfranchise.

“Oh, my God – totally!” Lawrence said when asked if she would ever want to pick up her character’s bow and arrow once more.

“If Katniss could ever come back into my life, 100 percent,” she added.

Lawrence starred as the heroine of the first four Hunger Games films, which are based on the young-adult dystopian book series of the same name by Suzanne Collins. The movies broke box-office records from 2012 through 2015, earning more than $3 billion worldwide.

Hunger Games prequel film — The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, based on Collins’ 2020 book of the same name — is set for a theatrical release on Nov. 17, 2023.

The film follows an 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (played by Sutherland in the original series and in the new film by Blyth), who would eventually rise to become the tyrannical president of the dystopian nation of Panem, and the main villain of the Hunger Games series.


While at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, Jennifer Lawrence told reporters what advice she would give to the cast of the prequel: “You guys are going to have the best time. Just have fun — don’t worry about anything.”

In November, the Academy Award winner also joked that hearing news about the prequel made her “feel old as mold.”

“I remember being 21 and thinking, ‘My God, one day they’ll redo and remake them. But I’ll be so old by then! I’ll be dead!’ ” she told The New York Times.

No Hard Feelings is in theaters June 23, while The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is set to premiere in theaters Nov. 17.
