Snow was a winner of the games who was chosen to be the mentor of the tribute from District 12, Lucy Gray Bird, for the 10th Hunger Games. The movie will neither feature Jennifer Lawrence nor Josh Hutcherson nor even Liam Hemsworth.

The film will be based on Suzanne Collins’ prequel novel which she released in May 2020 and even before its publication, Lionsgate already committed to making it a film in the franchise. The Hunger Games veteran Francis Lawrence will be back to the director’s chair with Catching Fire’s scribe Michael Arndt.

The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is scheduled for a theatrical release on November 17, 2023.
