This is like so strange. I still think of him as little whimpy Jonathan on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I would have never thought of him as a screenwriter for something this big.

I could have sworn they already had a writer for this. Oh well, as long as it's a good script I don't really care. I still can't say I'm all for the splitting it into 2 parts though. To be honest, Mockingjay was the weakest of the three books, and I don't see it getting any better in a two-part film.

I don't know either unless it's going to include an overflow of part of the second book.

The only thing I can think of is that they're going to play up the 'war' part of it more and show a wider view of the rebellion.

Ugh why do they do this to me! I'm so addicted now, reading the books and everything, and then they go and pull a "this is a two part movie!" on me! I hate that, but can't resist seeing this one lol

I know...anyone who's read the books is hooked. There is nothing we can do but wait and hope for the best movie possible.

Or in this case, best two parts ever :D haha
