Despite news breaking out that Gary Ross will not be returning to direct Catching Fire, new sources say nothing is confirmed. There is still a chance Gary will return. As the news broke, Celebuzz was quickly there for a response to the panic.
Breathe (a little) easier Hunger Games fans!
While many have expressed their devastation at the news that director Gary Ross would not be returning to direct its sequel, Catching Fire, a source close to the situation tells Celebuzz that “nothing is official.”
After some lengthy negotiations, many are citing Gary’s film-making eye to be the main reason he would consider not coming back, not money.
Gary has directed a number of varying projects from Pleasantville to Seabiscuit, and The Playlist is reporting that the “burning desire simply isn’t there to spend another couple of years with Katniss in the Capitol.”
We know that we’re rooting for Gary to come back, Catching Fire just wouldn’t be the same without him!
What do you guys think? Do you want Gary to direct CF? Or would you like to see someone else take a shot? Sound off in the comments!
Now, we are just not sure what to think. But it is certainly good to know that there is still a chance we can keep our Hunger Games loving, Katniss finding director! Do you want him to stay on? Let us know!
