Screen veteran Donald Sutherland has called his "Hunger Games' co-star "a dream".
The 77 year old, who resumes his role as President Snow in the next instalment Hunger Games Catching Fire says working on the film has been an ideal job.
"'Hunger Games,' it's about the oligarchy of privilege. And to be able to participate in the struggle against that is everything that my heart would desire. And then, above and beyond that, to have the honor and delight of working with Jennifer, she's a dream to work with. She's a dream. She's a dream. I love that child."
The Oscar winning actress returns as Katniss Everdeen, who finds herself the target of the Capitol after her triumph at the Hunger Games ignite rebellion in Panem.
Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz will all rejoin the cast of the dystopian epic. The film, adapted by Simon Beaufoy and Michael Arnt, is based on Suzanne Collins' second installment in the Hunger Games trilogy of the same name.
Currently in post-production, Catching Fire is set to hit US screens 22nd November this year.
