The Hunger Games Seeks A New Director

| Filed under: Film FlickersHunger Games

The Hunger Games again

It's time to reap a new director!

Now that Lionsgate is almost done casting Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the studio is making plans for the third film in the franchise. Their first order of business: find a new director.

You see, production for Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2 is moving waaay too fast for Catching Fire's director Francis Lawrence to make the sequel and have time to prep the next movies. So, the book's author Suzanne Collins and the rest of the studio heads are currently vetting the right directors for the next two films.

Of course, the films could benefit from having the same director… buuuut it appears that getting all four Hunger Games movies in the can is the studio's #1 priority.

Is that the best plan….? Probably not!

But like the people of the Capital, as long as we don't have go a year without a new Hunger Games, we won't complain!

    Like 50 Shades of Grey, once I finished the Hunger games books, I didn't really care that much. Only curious about the casting.

    Well if they've already announced the following film release dates they can't really go "oh our director works slowly and so we're releasing them all 2 years apart". I understand where they're coming from, peoples attention spans these days are so short. Plus I'm sure you'd write a post about how the subsequent films are taking so long to be released.

    I don't even know why they're making four movies. It's not like they need it. Probably just to get more attention. I get that Breaking Dawn and Deathly Hallows had to get cut into two, but that was because the books are long and no detail could be wasted. But Hunger Game's books aren't that long at all.

    Re: KittyKat – Well, the last onehas quite a lot of details, and it has nothing to do with de HP or Twil. Series, sorreh, but you are wrong..

    Sorry not my cup of tea, saw a preview last year and said "Naw" but my best wishes go out to the cast and crew of this movie.
