Francis Lawrence Says Catching Fire is "Very Faithful"

In an interview with SciFiNow, Francis Lawrence talks about the spinning cornucopia (nice!) and assures us that Catching Fire is a faithful adaptation:

“It’s a really faithful adaptation. We definitely made some cuts, but we did it with Suzanne [Collins, author], and I would say that it’s very, very faithful.”
One of the page-to-screen moments that Lawrence can’t wait for fans to see is the spinning cornucopia, which houses weapons that tributes can steal for themselves.
“There is a moment we have in the arena when the gamemaker starts to spin the cornucopia, and I’m very proud of that,” he tells us.
“We designed a very cool sequence and created a spinning island, and that’s going to be very, very cool. So that’s kind of fun and very unique. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Glad to know that Suzanne was there for what cuts they made, and this article is just making us more excited to see it! Read the whole article HERE.
