With earning extra amounts of money being all the rage nowadays, it only makes sense that The Hunger Games should plan to earn as much as possible. The perfect way to do that is by splitting the three-part story into four parts. It's proved pretty lucrative for Harry Potter and will help Breaking Dawn earn all the moneys. It looks like Lionsgate is planning to follow a similar model with their biggest seller to date. In an article posted on Deadline, the studio told Wall Street to expect four films.

Assuming the films are good and have something epic to showcase, I'm all for it. But let's be careful that this doesn't become the norm in Hollywood. I'm perfectly content with Alvin & The Chipmunks capping it as a Shrillogy.
