Gary Ross’ Hunger Games Sequel Plans

Gary Ross and The Hunger Games castGary Ross "intends" to make the next Hunger Games movie

The director of The Hunger Games has revealed that he is set to make the next film in the three part series written by Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire, because he has been asked to.

"I am attached to the next film and I'm intending to do it, I haven't had a chance to think about it yet. So many people ask me adaptation questions or 'Who's gonna play so-and-so?' I literally finished this movie Tuesday at midnight, I finished color timing, and then I went into the junket a day later, so it's not like I've had a chance to think about Catching Fire, but yeah it's my intention to do the next one. They've asked me to do so," he said.

Actor Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne in the film, is very much looking forward to working with Gary for the follow-up:

"He's a great director to work with because he's very open and very manic on set. He tries everything possible and makes sure he gets it from every different angle. He's just a good, energetic guy who keeps everyone on their toes, and keeps the set alive. He's just open to your ideas."

However the 55-year-old Pleasantville director has said that he is considering making some changes to the look of the next movie. "I think that there may be some aesthetic departures from what I did here, but I don't wanna talk about them yet, not because I'm being evasive, but just because they're so half-baked I wouldn't be doing myself justice in the process if I talked about them prematurely, but I think there may be some differences, yeah."
