Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence thinks it's "too soon" for a Hunger Games prequel.

The fourth instalment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, was released just last month but there is already talk of another movie, although the 25-year-old beauty - who portrays Katniss Everdeen - insists she wouldn't get involved.

She told Variety: "I wouldn't be involved. I think it's too soon. They've got to let the body get cold, in my opinion."

Meanwhile, rumours of more movies has only been fuelled by comments made by Lionsgate's Vice Chairman Michael Burns, who alluded to the fact the franchise "will live on and on".

He later added: "If we went backwards there obviously would be arenas ... Whatever extensions of The Hunger Games brand we pursue, the intent is not to glorify violence by arbitrarily telling arena stories, but to continue Suzanne Collins' exploration of the concepts of just war theory."

Jennifer also previously admitted she is ready to "move on" from the Hunger Games franchise.

She shared: "It's crazy. I signed on to these projects when I was 20 years old. I remember being like, 'Oh my God, I'm going to be 25 when I'm finished. It seemed so far away.

"It does feel over. It didn't for a while and I didn't think it would ever sink in, but it has now. It feels over. And that's okay. It's okay to move on."
