With the news breaking today that Gary Ross may not, in fact, return for Catching Fire (Lionsgate has released a statement saying that his leaving the franchise is not yet confirmed, despite reports otherwise), that may leave the director’s chair wide open for a film all but guaranteed to do even better than the massively successful Hunger Games.
The question, of course, is who might that position go to? I’ve put together an initial list of possible choices, with a focus on those who have had experience with dystopian films.
What do you think? Is there someone who you think fits better than any of these?
