Now that Gary Ross has officially quit The Hunger Games franchise, the big talk in Hollywood is his replacement!!
So naturally, Joss Whedon was approached at the premiere of Cabin in the Woods, and here's what he had to say about it:
You know, I love the books and I really love the movie. I think Gary Ross [did it] beautifully, and who wouldn’t want to work with that cast, honestly?
And I think the second book is really exciting. But I’ve been walking in somebody else’s world for a long time. I've spent the last two years doing that and watching Cabin in the Woods reminds me what it's like when something comes purely from your own brain, how much fun that is.
It'd be tempting as hell, not that they'd necessarily ask, but no, I feel like it’s time to go back into the Insane-o place and see what else comes out.
Well hmph!! Fine then, Joss! That's just fine!!! LOLz!
If he's not gonna step up to the plate, then who will??
Lionsgate better get someone strong if they want audiences sponsoring those ticket sales!
