Here’s a handy rule of thumb: If you have to wait for a body to get cold before you do something, chances are you really should not be doing that thing. Walk away. Maybe let someone know about that body you found. Jennifer Lawrence knows what I’m taking about. “I wouldn’t be involved,” the Joy star told Variety when asked about those rumored Hunger Games prequels. “I think it’s too soon. They’ve got to let the body get cold, in my opinion.” If Lionsgate’s desire to make a prequel is rooted in wanting more superfun battle-royale scenes in which children must fight to the death, it wouldn’t make much sense to have Jennifer Lawrence in the film, anyway. What are we going to see a young Katniss do? Huddle in the rain for a piece of burnt bread? Learn to subsistence-hunt so her mother and sister don’t starve to death? Wow, yeah, sounds like the kids are gonna love it.
