Late last year 134 teenagers from a middle school in Texas wrote to the Hunger Games director Gary Ross to let him know what they thought of The Hunger Games book and their ideas for the movie.
As with many similar school projects, they never expected to hear anything back. But it seems Gary Ross listened.
Ross told EW that he was inspired by the students’ letters, sying that he agrees with them that the movie must be character driven rather than focusing on the violence.
“They were very well written and very astute,” Ross said. “You could tell how much they connected to the book and they were just really terrific to read. It was fascinating and really kind of inspiring.”
Ross also said he hopes to pay a visit to the school’s teacher and the students.
“As soon as I get a chance I would love to come down there. These were such thoughtful, well written, passionate letters.”
