Regardless of who directs Catching Fire, the film is likely to become a massive blockbuster. However, what Ross brought to The Hunger Games helped make the movie as successful as it was with critics and moviegoers alike. One hopes that the next director can make a film that both honors the subject material and expands upon it.
Here, again, is our list of 5 directors who could helm Catching Fire:
- Debra Granik (Winter's Bone)
- David Slade (Eclipse, 30 Days of Night)
- Patty Jenkins (Monster)
- Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman)
- Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes)
