Back in November, we heard that Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours scribe Simon Beaufoy was in final talks to pen the screenplay for the film and that Hunger Games director Gary Ross would likely be coming back for round two as well. Today, both of those "probably's" become "definitely's."
The Wrap reports that Beaufoy is in the middle of writing the script now. In addition to directing duties, Ross will also be supervising the writing of the screenplay. Actors Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson and Liam Hemsworth are likewise expected to return.
Catching Fire is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
With the Hunger Games releasing in March this year.
