The Cover of the Third Hunger Games Book Revealed

Mockingjay

Big news for fans of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy: the third book will be called Mockingjay and is scheduled for release on August 24, 2010. I just recently read the first two books, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Mockingjay. I’m talking Harry Potter levels of anticipation here! If you haven’t read the books, they take place in a dystopian future where the government makes children fight each other to the death in an event called the Hunger Games as punishment for a previous rebellion. The games are televised as a twisted reality show where viewers root for their favorites and sponsors vie for popular contestants (Read Jose’s reviews of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire).

This article in USA Today about Mockingjay also mentions that Collins is finishing the screenplay for the Hunger Games movie. It seems unusual that Collins would actually write the screenplay herself, but apparently she got her start writing TV shows for Nickelodeon. Hopefully there will be more movie news soon!
