While "Catching Fire" may have reaped most of its cast, the third installment of "The Hunger Games" now has its release date.

The big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins's hit cleaned up during its March debut, but Lionsgate is now setting its sights on November for the rest of the franchise's release.

"Catching Fire" is set to hit theaters November 22, 2013, and it will be followed by a two-part conclusion of "Mockingjay" on November 21, 2014 and November 20, 2015.

Meanwhile, things are heating up for "Catching Fire": Jena Malone has signed on for the role of Johanna and Philip Seymour Hoffman for Plutarch Heavensbee. All in favor of fast-forwarding to November 2013, say aye.
