“If [author Suzanne Collins] has something to say, then she’ll write a book about it,” producer Nina Jacobson said about future storylines
While the actress recently said she would be open to revisiting the character — whom she played in 2012's The Hunger Games and its three sequels, based on Suzanne Collins' book series — producer Nina Jacobson says Katniss' reappearance in a future installment would be up to the author.
“If Suzanne has something to say, then she’ll write a book about it,” Jacobson, 58, said in an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment published Tuesday surrounding the upcoming release of the prequel film The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, based on Collins' 2020 novel.
"Honestly, as much as I love Katniss, I think her story is complete,” the producer added. “And I think that Suzanne feels that her story is complete."
"But if that changes, and Suzanne has something she wants to say, and it involves Katniss, then I would be thrilled," Jacobson added. "But really, any chance to be back in this world, and lead with [director Francis Lawrence] and Suzanne, I would take regardless of who it was about.”

Lawrence, 52, is of a similar mind, telling Yahoo! Entertainment of Collins, 61, "If for whatever reason she had some thematic idea that made sense to tell another Katniss story, I’d be in, and then I’m sure Jen would be in."
“But it really all comes from theme and idea, and Suzanne," the director added.
“Oh, my God — totally!” the Oscar winner said when asked if she would ever want to pick up her character’s bow and arrow once more. “If Katniss could ever come back into my life, 100%."
The movie follows an 18-year-old Coriolanus Snow (played by Donald Sutherland in the original series and in the new film by Blyth), who would eventually rise to become the tyrannical president of Panem.
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is in theaters Nov. 17.
