Claflin Says ‘Hunger Games’ Franchise Could ‘Absolutely’ Produce Prequels

Based on the bestselling novels by Suzanne Collins, Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” franchise recently drew to a close in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2,” which bowed in November last year. However, star Sam Claflin — who played fan-favorite Finnick Odair in the hit series — believes there’s plenty of room for more films based in the “Hunger Games” universe.

“The great thing about what Suzanne Collins did was to create a world where people want to learn more about it and I think they absolutely have the platform to do [prequels],” he told E! News.

“I think there’s so many juicy elements to this story, elements that people want to know more about, I think telling the story of how the Hunger Games first started that to me is interesting,” he added. “To see Woody Harrelson’s character do his Hunger Games? I think it really really is something that could be done.”

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” scored over $653m at the global box office, in addition to maintaining the top spot at the weekend box office for four weeks in a row.

Claflin will appear next in “Me Before You,” which hits theaters on June 3.
