Not So Fast: Gary Ross Might Play With ‘Catching Fire’ After All

By  · Published on April 9th, 2012

After Rob won Best Headline last week with the story about Gary Ross potentially leaving The Hunger Games movies over a money issue, it appears as if it’s all still on the table. He’ll be meeting with Lionsgate today to talk about whether they have the pockets deep enough to woo him on back.

That’s the story at least. The inner workings of all this will remain secret until someone writes a book that no one buys, but all that really matters is that Ross is in talks to come back on board as the clock ticks down to a shooting schedule that starts in August so that Jennifer Lawrence can fight oppression before she has to start her second year at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters in January.

For those who loved the movie, and for those that hated it, is Ross the right choice to return to the franchise, or is there a better director out there just waiting for a phone call? [THR]
