Casting has been, well, catching fire recently for the hotly anticipated sequel to this year’s global smash The Hunger Games and courtesy of THR, we’ve now learned that director Francis Lawrence intends to shoot certain scenes with IMAX cameras.

Lawrence is apparently being candid on what sequences specifically will be given the grand treatment, but I’m sure fans of the series have some personal choices in mind. One thing we can assume is that the proportion of IMAX content to that of traditional footage won’t come anywhere near close to the full hour that Christopher Nolan shot for The Dark Knight Rises.

This announcement is a welcome one in the wave of disappointment that came with Gary Ross’ departure from the fledgling franchise after just one film, but it appears Lawrence is taking care with the production.

If The Hunger Games proved anything, it’s that »
