Woody Harrelson has joined fans’ calls for a Hunger Games cinematic follow-up focusing on the romance between Haymitch Abernathy and Effie Trinket – the characters played respectively by him and his alluring co-star Elizabeth Banks in the franchise’s most recent installment last year.
In a video clip posted by UK news site Metro, Harrelson revealed: “I have a crush on Elizabeth Banks, I’m not going to lie.” Referring to the kiss shared by their characters in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, he said: “When we did (kiss), it wasn’t like just a light thing where we thought it was nothing.”
Tantalizingly, he added: “Hopefully, once we do the sequel to this that no one’s expecting – including the author – something will pick up for these two.”
Harrelson’s words, in an interview for the impending arrival of the Blu-ray combo pack version of Mockingjay Part 2, hint strongly at his willingness to pick up where he left off with the film that has recently hit the iTunes Store. We say much more about that movie in the new AppleMagazine issue out today.
