IndieWireâ€™s The Playlist has reported two new director names were added into the mix as the possible director of â€œThe Hunger Gamesâ€ sequel â€œCatching Fire.â€ The site named â€œMoneyballâ€ director Bennet Miller and â€œI Am Legendâ€ director Francis Lawrence as the possible candidates.
They will join the other names previously mentioned this week including David Cronenberg, Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Miller recently directed â€œMoneyballâ€ last year that was nominted for six Oscar awards. And he directed 2005â€™s â€œCapote,â€ which earned Philip Seymour Hoffman the Oscar for best actor.
As for Lawrence, he has a long resume with films like â€œI Am Legend,â€ and â€œConstantineâ€ under his belt. He even helmed the cute romance film â€œWater for Elephantsâ€ last year.
So far, â€œCatching Fireâ€ is lining up very good directors as possibility to replace â€œThe Hunger Gamesâ€ director Gary Ross.
Maybe we can put all these directors into an arena and the last man standingâ€”gets the job.
