'Hunger Games' sequel to have rewrite from 'Toy Story 3' scribe?

By
The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire's script may receive a rewrite from Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Arndt is in talks to work on the initial drafts produced by Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy.

Should Arndt sign on to the project, he will have to work quickly thanks to star Jennifer Lawrence's busy schedule. The actress is due to begin filming the sequel to X-Men: First Class in January, 2013.

Lionsgate is currently hoping to get Catching Fire into production by late summer for a November 22, 2013 release date.

In 2007, Arndt won an Oscar for his Little Miss Sunshine screenplay.

In April, Hunger Games director Gary Ross stepped down from helming Catching Fire, citing a busy work schedule.

I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence was chosen to take his place in late April.
