After the record-breaking success of The Hunger Games, Josh Hutcherson is ready to hit the big screen again for his new film Detention, a comedy-horror film where he and his fellow classmates try to escape a serial killer known as "Cinderhella."
"I think it's kinda like if Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club and Scream got together and had a baby," Josh says about the genre-crossing film, which he also executive-produced.
Josh obviously shares a close bond with costar Shanley Caswell, who says that Josh hasn't changed since the staggering success of The Hunger Games.
"Josh will always stay the same cool guy," she says, as her clearly embarrassed costar cringes. "It's a good thing! I mean a cool guy as in a person you would want to hang out with. It's not like he's become some crazy star."
And what can we expect from Catching Fire, the highly anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games?
"You know they just hired Simon Beaufoy to write it, who wrote Slumdog Millionaire, who's incredible ... so I'm just excited to see how they translate the book into the movie because I'm a huge fan of the book," Josh says.
Check out the video to see Josh's now trademark sense of humor in full effect, and how Shanley felt about shooting her semi-nude scene.
