'Hunger Games' Director Gary Ross in Tough Negotiation for Sequel
Despite the movie's box-office records, the director isn't locked up as Lionsgate could pull a "Twilight"-style switcheroo over money.
Now that The Hunger Games is a hit with more than $363 million in the till, the question is whether writer-director Gary Ross will return for the next installment in the lucrative Lionsgate franchise.
Unlike stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, Ross is not signed for a sequel. And negotiations for him to do the first movie were "a terrible experience," says a source with knowledge of the discussions, because Ross is a seasoned filmmaker (Pleasantville, Seabiscuit) and Lionsgate isn't accustomed to paying seasoned-filmmaker fees. He ended up taking a relatively low $3 million to write (with Billy Ray and novelist Suzanne Collins) and direct. But he will collect a very remunerative 5 percent of backend.
when i was reading the book, i was imagining chris evans as finnick.. .. too bad..
Any news about who will play for the role Finnick?
Can they just revive Alexander Ludwig and make him Finnick?
Do you think it's reliable? Wikipedia can be edited by anyone.
^nope i don't think it is that's why i lol'ed. also wala pa din namang casting results. hindi pa naman sumasabog yung dashboard ko ng news at who has been cast.
Grant Gustin Would Love to Play Finnick in ‘Catching Fire’
A couple days ago, Zac Efron commented on being named a fan favorite for the role of Finnick in Catching Fire. Today, another actor responded to being one of the names fans are talking about for the role.
In an interview with Glee’s Grant Gustin, ClevverTV asked him what he’s heard about fans wanting him to play Finnick. He says he actually read Catching Fire about a year ago, and he had a strong connection to Finnick, telling his friend at the time, “I’m gonna play this part.” Grant says he’d love to play Finnick and even went to a midnight showing, saying he’s a hard-core fan of the series.
uhm no, he needs more experience in acting and needs to be older
Naiinis ako sa kanya, first impression ko sa kanya sa Glee kaya ayaw ko sa kanya.
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS Sequel to Shoot in January to Avoid Scheduling Conflicts for Jennifer Lawrence
Who would win in a fight between Mystique from X-Men: First Class and Katniss from The Hunger Games? The answer: Jennifer Lawrence. While 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate studios were busy scheduling the shoots for their respective mega-franchise sequels, they got in a bit of a tussle over Lawrence’s availability. I’m sure the bankable young lady loves to have movie studios fighting over her, but luckily the conflict has been resolved. The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, will shoot with Lawrence this fall; after that, she will film the sequel to X-Men: First Class the following January. Hit the jump for much more on both projects.
Heat Vision reports that, although the studios have managed to get along this time around, if another Hunger Games project interferes with a 20th Century Fox film which involves Lawrence, Fox can exercise the option on the young star’s contract. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen as both of the franchises are off to a great start and I, for one, welcome every opportunity to view Lawrence on the big screen. While it’s obvious that Lawrence will return as Katniss for Catching Fire, director Gary Ross’ job is not quite as secure. Although the first film was a big hit and will continue to rake in the cash until another movie knocks it out, we will have to wait and see whether or not Ross will return.
In related news, Matthew Vaughn, the director of X-Men: First Class, doesn’t share Ross’ worries as Vaughn will be returning to helm his own sequel. Written by Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes), the sequel may pick up with the assassination of JFK, according to an interview with Vaughn last year. If you’re not caught up on either of these projects, be sure to check out all of our continuing coverage on The Hunger Games as well as X-Men: First Class. Also, look for Lawrence in the horror/thriller, House at the End of the Street, which opens September 21st.

Gary Ross Leaves 'The Hunger Games' Franchise, Won't Direct 'Catching Fire' Sequel
While this morning it was reported that Lionsgate and Fox worked out their scheduling issues to allow Jennifer Lawrence to shoot “Catching Fire” and the “X-Men: First Class” sequel essentially back-to-back, it looks like before cameras can start rolling on “The Hunger Games” sequel this fall, the studio will need to find a director. The Playlist has learned that Gary Ross has officially exited the franchise and will not direct the sequel, formally giving Lionsgate and Summit his notice earlier this week, that he will not be coming back.
Though recent trade reports have spun the story as being an issue mostly about money, that’s pretty much a small part of the motivation. Ross has never been a filmmaker that repeats himself (going from satire in “Pleasantville” to horse racing drama in “Seabiscuit” and action in “The Hunger Games”) and we’re told the burning desire simply isn’t there to spend another couple of years with Katniss in the Capitol (evidently, he also liked the first book best). And while the lowball salary offer probably didn’t help, Ross already has a fairly lucrative career as a screenwriter (and rewriter) and money isn’t really the issue. Simply put, the filmmaker is looking to change things up for this next effort.
While the details on what that project will be are still coming together, we’re told it will be something he has written that (ironically) will earn him a better payday that he would’ve received on “Catching Fire.” Essentially, it’s a win-win for Ross, who gets to move on to a project he developed for this fourth feature, and will allow him to do something different.
The hunt will be on to find a replacement soon. “Catching Fire” shoots this fall and will open on November 22, 2013.
NOOOOOOO!!!!! Totoo ba `to? Parang hindi ako makapaniwala Parang biglaan naman since he’s been talking about his plans for Catching Fire during the whole THG press circuit
