While promoting ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, Elizabeth Banks talked with Celebuzz about ‘The Hunger Games‘ director Gary Ross and new ‘Catching Fire‘ director Francis Lawrence.
Was she surprised when Gary Ross decided he would not direct the sequel, Catching Fire?
“I wasn’t that surprised,” Elizabeth, 38, said. “Of course I’m disappointed, I love him we’ve made two movies together now and he’s an amazing filmmaker and he did a great job.”
So what are Elizabeth’s thoughts on the new director Francis Lawrence?
“I also feel like it’s going to be really fun for the franchise to have fresh eyes in there and give someone else as shot,” she continued. “I think Gary is very happy. As long as he’s happy, it’s fine.”
