As reported yesterday, Steven Soderbergh will definitely be working on The Hunger Games movie. Director, Gary Ross told EW: “It’s true he’s shooting two days of second unit. He’s one of my best friends and we all help each other a little bit on these things.”
Gary Ross also told EW that the big action scenes are in the can.
“We’ve already done a lot of action-y stuff,” says Ross. “We’ve burned down a forest, we’ve had the fire sequence, we blew up this pyramid of stuff that went 150 feet up in the air, and we had suitcases flying over a quarter of a mile.” While Ross says the high-octane action has been a thrill, he remains most turned on by the story’s emotional core. “I think it’s the power of Jennifer’s acting that’s the most moving to me,” he says. “That’s the stuff that knocks me out.”
