I don’t know about you guys, but I’m slightly worried to hear that Gary Ross is walking away from directing the second installment in the Hunger Games series, ‘Catching Fire’. From what I gather, Ross really only took the job as a means to raise money for other projects–but now that ‘The Hunger Games’ has generated so much positive support from fans, there is a real danger of disappointment, anger, and frustration once ‘Catching Fire’ is released with a different filmmaker at the helm. Always a publication to look ahead, Entertainment Weekly took this news as an opportunity to poke fun at Hollywood’s most famous directors and designed posters according to each filmmaker’s aesthetic. Some of them are pretty hilarious: check them out here. What do you think? Who is the best candidate to replace Ross for this franchise? All I can say is I’m right glad Nancy Meyers was not chosen for the project.
