Steven Soderbergh's Been Working On The Hunger Games???

Filed under: Film Flickers

Do tell, Steven!

New reports going around the Internet indicate that Contagion director Steven Soderbergh has been doing second unit filming on The Hunger Games, and NOW Steven has opened up about his involvement.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"The f—ing firestorm starts. 'Why is he here? What's going on? Is the movie in trouble? Is he directing footage from the second one?' All of this crazy-ass speculation."

"Back in April, [The Hunger Games director] Gary [Ross] — who is a close friend of mine [and] I've exchanged creative favors with non-stop over the last 15 years — when he got the boards for the shoot…called me and said, 'Hey, first week of August, I got these two days of second unit, Is there any way you can come down and help me out? Because I'd rather have you do it than hire somebody who I don't know. I said, 'Actually, that works out.' We'll just be finishing Contagion and prepping Magic Mike, and yeah, it could be fun."

More from Steven:

"[It was my duty] to come in and duplicate exactly what Gary and [cinematographer] Tom Stern…are doing, to mimic as closely as I can to their aesthetic. And that's what I attempted to do. But if I've done my job properly…by design, you won't be able to tell what I did because it's supposed to cut seamlessly into what they're doing."

Thanks for opening up, Steven! We gotta say though…with everything you've got going on right now, are you REALLY going to give it all up to become a painter???
