Hunger Games Finale Finds Director; Doesn't Look Very Far!

Hunger Games Finale Finds Director

It took the producers of The Hunger Games series a long time to find a director for Catching Fire.

And it seems now that they have him, they don't plan on letting him go!

Francis Lawrence, no relation to star Jennifer Lawrence, is best known for directing I Am Legend and a myriad of music videos for the likes of Aerosmith, Jennifer Lopez, and P!nk.

But that is sure to change once he gets finished directing not one, not two, but three Hunger Games films, as he has been signed on to complete the franchise!

The best news about this? If Mr. Lawrence is getting attached to the Mockingjay already, producers must REALLY like what he's doing so far!

You don't ask someone to go steady unless you know they'll treat you right! We're more stoked than ever for Fire now!

Jennifer Lawrence went down to breezy Santa Monica on Monday to meet up with the her Catching Fire director. And doesn't she just look ready to TALK BIZ!?!

But knowing her goofy self, she probably went to the Pier after all that Hunger Games chit-chat and rode the ferris wheel a few times. Ha!
