“Get ready for The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, coming to a big screen near you,” they added.

The film takes place during the 10th annual Hunger Games, when 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow takes his turn – who later turns out to be the ruthless leader in the novels.

The film will be directed by Francis Lawrence, who worked on the last four films from the franchise.

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes book will be released on May 19th, but it’s not yet known when the film will hit cinemas.
