liam hemsworth talks catching fire gary ross

He's not the only one sad to say farewell!

Stars and fans of The Hunger Games alike were bummed to discover that Gary Ross would not be returning to direct the adaptation's follow-up, Catching Fire, and Liam Hemsworth has finally opened up about the switch to new director Francis Lawrence, and reveals that he's bummed to have to say good-bye to the original helmer!

He explains:

"The last I heard the new director (Lawrence) had just come on, so that's really cool. I'm excited about that. I think we shoot the last few months of this year. I'm really sad to see that Gary's not going to be part of the second one. He did such an amazing job on the first. I think that there's still so many people a part of it that want the film to be great and care about it so much that they're not going to bring the wrong person on."

But hey! We're glad to hear that he's staying positive about the switch-up!

And he's right - with so many cast and crew returning for round two!

Catching Fire is an entirely different story than the first - a fresh set of eyes may be just what this sequel needs to take this franchise to the next level!

    Lol, I agree. I'm not sure if he will be able to get rid of that "Miley's boyfriend" shadow ever. People would probably associate him with her even if they'd break up–> Liam H. = Miley's ex
