Jennifer Lawrence In Demand: 'Hunger Games,' 'X-Men' Sequels Want Rising Starlet

Not that you needed any further proof now is the best time ever to be Jennifer Lawrence, but the actress is in such high demand that she's got two studios vying for her franchise attention. According to THR, both Lionsgate and Fox want to shoot sequels for "The Hunger Games" and "X-Men: First Class," respectively, this fall, with Fox holding the inside track on her services. Does that mean J.Law won't get to play Katniss in "Catching Fire"?

LOLz. Not even close! Despite the fact that "Catching Fire," the follow-up to "The Hunger Games," will shoot toward the end of the summer, and the "X-Men" sequel will start in early fall, it's believed both studios will work around Lawrence's availability. "They are both making accommodations for her," said a representative for Lawrence to THR.

"I actually can't wait to go back," Lawrence told Moviefone exclusively about playing Katniss Everdeen in "Catching Fire," Suzanne Collins's "Hunger Games" sequel. "It's a character I would love to revisit."

"The Hunger Games" arrives in theaters on March 23. "Catching Fire" is due out on Nov. 22, 2013.
