This isn’t Knepper’s only big-budget YA adaptation, the veteran actor also worked on “Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters”. The final book in the series will be broken up into two films (because that’s the way it’s done now) and will star Jennifer Lawrence as the leading protagonist Katniss. The film will be directed by Francis Lawrence and is scheduled to released in November, 2014, with the final installment set for 2015 .
