Catching Fire directors

As you all probably know, Lionsgate is on the hunt for a new director to helm the sequel to The Hunger Games.

Critically acclaimed filmmakers David Cronenberg, Alfonso Cuaron, and Alejandro González Iñárritu were named as potential candidates to direct Catching Fire, but now the studio has named two more possibilities.

Sources report that Bennett Miller, who directed Oscar nominee Moneyball, and Francis Lawrence are in talks to take over. The latter most recently directed Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in Water For Elephants, but also helmed the 2005 action movie Constantine.

Considering Miller is already attached to direct a project in the fall and filming for the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' second book is slated to begin in August, Lawrence's open schedule may increase his chances of getting the gig.

Based on their resume, which director of the two would U like to direct Catching Fire?
