According to The Hollywood Reporter, Danny Strong has been given the green light to begin working on the second part of Mockingjay.
Lionsgate has exercised its option for Danny Strong, who wrote the award-winning HBO movie Game Change, to pen the script for the second part of the company’s adaptation of Mockingjay, the finale of the Hunger Games movie series.
Strong had already written the script for Mockingjay (Part One) and had a deal to write the script for the second part. But it was always contingent on the studio liking and approving his draft for Part One. Now it’s all systems go for him to commence the new script.
