Three Characters Cut From 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.01.10
When the new director of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire says the new movie will be "very, very true to book." Sometimes this is not always best to hear when it involves characters from the previous movie. Entertainment Weekly spoke with director Francis Lawrence and how some of the characters will be getting the axe from book to screen.
The first set of cuts can be with Bonnie and Twill, the District 8 runaways Katniss stumbles upon in the woods who first alert her to both the rebellion she inadvertently sparked and the existence of District 13. Introducing District 13 has changed and the scene of Katniss scaling a tree and then leaping over District 12′s electrified fence has also changed with Bonnie and Twill gone.
The second set of cuts goes to Darius, District 12′s youngest peacekeeper who intervenes during Gale’s whipping and then sentenced to the life of an Avox.
