Natalie Dormer would be interested in a 'Hunger Games' prequel but only if author Suzanne Collins is part of it

Natalie Dormer would be interested in a 'Hunger Games' prequel.

The 33-year-old actress - who played rebel Cressida in the franchise - said that she would consider getting involved in a new movie in the series only if original 'Hunger Games' author Suzanne Collins is part of it.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination and everything that is the success of 'The Hunger Games', the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne. She wrote such a complex world and yet at the same time had so many scenes that deal with all the things we're struggling with our own time and zeitgeist."

While Natalie is enthusiastic, star Jennifer Lawrence thinks it's "too soon" for a 'Hunger Games' prequel.

The fourth instalment, 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2', and the 25-year-old beauty - who portrays Katniss Everdeen - insists she wouldn't get involved in a new movie.

She said: "I wouldn't be involved. I think it's too soon. They've got to let the body get cold, in my opinion."

Reports of more movies were fuelled by comments made by Lionsgate's Vice Chairman Michael Burns, who alluded to the fact the franchise "will live on and on".

He later added: "If we went backwards there obviously would be arenas ... Whatever extensions of 'The Hunger Games' brand we pursue, the intent is not to glorify violence by arbitrarily telling arena stories, but to continue Suzanne Collins' exploration of the concepts of just war theory."
