Hunger Games Sequel Gets A Director!!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHunger Games

Hunger Games Sequel Francis Lawrence

That was quick!

Lionsgate has locked in a replacement for Hunger Games director Gary Ross — just two weeks after he told the studio to kiss his ass he wasn't sticking around for the sequel.

The two final tributes in the running for the job were Constantine and Water for Elephants director, Francis Lawrence, and Bennett Miller who directed last years Oscar nominated flick, Moneyball.

The Catching Fire director has been declared, and the winner is… Francis Lawrence!

Apparently, the decision came down to one simple thing: who was free to direct a movie this fall. LOL!

Are we disappointed they didn't convince Joss Whendon to take the gig? YES!!

Still, we're sure the I Am Legend filmmaker is gonna do great fine!

    This is baaaaaaaad. What happened to the producers/studio picking an innovative director to protect the integrity of the books? Did anyone see Water for Elephants…….? Exactly. His resume looks pretty sad. Hopefully he doesn't botch it up too bad since catching fire is my favorite of the three books. There's still time to change your mind Lionsgate
