'The Hunger Games' won't be out until March 23, 2012, but Lionsgate is already making plans for the sequel, 'Catching Fire.' According to Deadline, the studio hopes to hire Simon Beaufoy to write the script. Beaufoy, whose credits include 'The Full Monty' and '127 Hours,' won an Oscar in 2009 for his 'Slumdog Millionaire' screenplay. The script for the first 'Hunger Games' film was written by Suzanne Collins, the author of the books.
