"I Am Legend" Director to Helm "The Hunger Games" Sequel

"I Am Legend" Director to Helm "The Hunger Games" SequelSubmit Comment
Lionsgate originally wanted Gary Ross to return to direct "The Hunger Games" sequel, called "Catching Fire." But after negotiations broke down, Ross decided to focus on other projects, leaving the studio without a helmer.

After some speculation about how could replace Ross, THR learned that Lionsgate eventually narrowed the list down Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine) and Bennett Miller (Moneball). Both directors met with the studio on Thursday and executives have now made their pick.

An official offer has now been made to Lawrence. The plan is to begin filming in August in order to have the film in theaters on November 22nd, 2013.

Other directors on the shortlist to direct "Catching Fire" were Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy), Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu (Babel), Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre) and Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code).

I Am Legend is not necessarily a good reference.

Plus, that girl in the pic has got a fat face today.

Really don't know anything about the series. Haven't seen Hunger Games, But Lawrence seems like their kind of director.

But I am Legend was a BIG let down for me, But this will be an easy paycheque and boxoffice hit for him.

Just make sure this new director uses a steadycam and tripod or something because that last camera was shaking like someone who just had a seizure and orgasm similtaneously.

Bennett Miller (Moneball)

I haven't seen Moneball is that like the porn parody of Moneyball?

Any self respecting director should steer clear of this franchise. They might get payed a sh*t load in money, but the respect they will lose can never be replaced.
