Because we cannot get our fill of dystopian worlds where children brutally fight to the death, Lionsgate, the studio responsible for the Hunger Games films, is contemplating the possibility of prequels. But when Jennifer Lawrence was asked to comment at the Joy premiere, she called out the scheme as bullshit.

“That can’t be true. It’s too soon,” she told E! New’s Marc Malkin.

Lawrence emphasized that if the prequels came to fruition, she—or perhaps more accurately, Katniss Everdeen—would be nowhere to be found in them.

“Screw that,” she said to Malkin. “No, way too soon. No support. I think it’s too soon. The body’s not even cold yet.” That’s a pretty apt expression given the films’ prodigious body count.

Anyway, fair point, JLaw. And by the way, if this means you’ll have some extra time on your hands, there are about five thousand of us who would be down to get drinks with you.
