The Hunger Games star Natalie Dormer has revealed that she is open to doing more films in the franchise - but only if author Suzanne Collins is involved.
The final film in the series, Mockingjay, Part 2, was released last month, and the possibility of getting the franchise to "live on and on and on" with prequels was floated by Lionsgate vice chairman Michael Burns.
Dormer, who plays Cressida in the films, talked of her admiration for The Hunger Games' author and how she would only be interested if Collins was on board.
"I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination, and everything that is the success of The Hunger Games, the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne,"
"She wrote such a complex world and yet at the same time had so many scenes that deal with all the things we're struggling with in our own time and zeitgeist."
"So I'm just a huge fan of Suzanne Collins and her writing, and I think Hunger Games producer Nina Jacobson and director Francis Lawrence have both talked about this, but anything - prequel, sequel, whatever - would have to come from her and her penmanship."
"So the minute I know that Suzanne is writing something, then yes, my ears would prick up. Almost definitely."
