The Hunger Games doesn’t debut until March 23, but we do know this: Lionsgate must like what it sees. Director Gary Ross will be back for the sequel Catching Fire. Ross wrote and directed The Hunger Games and will oversee the work by newly hired Catching Fire screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire).

Liam Hemsworth will return as Gale, Woody Harrelson is back as Haymitch (don’t miss the photo of Haymitch that debuted today), Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss and Josh Hutcherson comes back as Peeta.
