It is directed by Francis Lawrence from a script by Simon Beaufoy and Michael deBruyn, based on the novel by Suzanne Collins. It was produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik.
Here's a synopsis: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 50 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.
