That would be awesome!
Since Gary Ross has officially abandoned the sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Lionsgate is scrambling to find another director. So far the studio has a list of "seven or eight names" that they and author Suzanne Collins would be interested in working with.
One of those names is David Cronenberg, the guy behind the science fiction classic The Fly and A History Of Violence. That's one heck of a long shot though because he has already turned down big budget blockbusters like Return Of The Jedi, Top Gun, and RoboCop in favor of smaller projects.
Other potential directors include Alfonso Cuaron, who directed the third installment of Harry Potter, and Academy Award nominee Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Biutiful).
It sounds like the producers and studio are trying hard to maintain the integrity of the series by attaching innovative directors. Who would U like to see take over where Gary Ross left off?
