Gary Ross Didn’t Regret His Decision On Walking Away From The Hunger Games Franchise

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, The Hunger Games movie director, Gary Ross discussed why he didn’t regret his decision on walking away from The Hunger Games franchise, his first book for children and more.

As for The Hunger Games, Ross insists he’s never second-guessed his ultimate decision to walk away from the franchise after co-writing and helming the phenomenally well-received first installment. ”I didn’t feel that I would have the time for the way that I work to do the movie justice,” he says. “I wear two hats. I don’t wear one hat. When you write and you direct that’s a linear process, it’s not a simultaneous process. I would’ve had to have written a script and prepped the whole movie in four months and on the first movie that’s a process that took me eight months. And I thought [Catching Fire] was a more difficult adaptation, not an easier one. I didn’t really feel I had the time I needed to live up to my own standards. And I haven’t had a moment’s regret. It was absolutely the right decision and I’m thrilled about new challenges.”

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Extras Casting Includes “Fire Breathers”?

This got to be the most bizarre news of the day.

We learned from The Hob a staff in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” casting department according to IMDb, Jennifer Rose Locke, has posted videos of extras casting on Vimeo. Sadly, these videos are now made private to prevent the highly protected content of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” from leaking out.

An audition clip of Issac King who has a striking resemblance to Josh Hutcherson, is rumored to play Peeta Mellark’s brother in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” was first found on Vimeo.

Issac King

Jennifer Rose Locke‘s Vimeo account also hosts private video albums which are titled “D11 Mayor“, “Peeta Family“, “Rue Family“, “Thresh Sister” and strangely, “Fire Breathers“.

What could this “Fire Breathers” be? An elaborate Capitol performance which involves circus acts such as people breathing fire? Dragons/humans hybrid? Let’s get carried away and tell us what do you think “Fire Breathers” is.

Meanwhile, we are glad the titles of these videos let us have a glimpse on what kind of characters might have a scene or two in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The Hunger Games, rated PG13, was released on 22 March 2012 and DVD and Blu-Ray are now available. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is scheduled for release on 22 November 2013 in USA.

PHOTOS: “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Victory Tour Stage Seen At DeKalb Peachtree Airport

This is yet another “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Victory Tour filming update. Do not read on if you do not wish to be spoiled.

After our photo heavy report on updates for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” filming which includes photos of Victory Tour stage yesterday, we have more photos of Victory Tour stage being spotted this time at DeKalb Peachtree Airport taken from Tumblr user stay-together-always.

“LXXV” is the roman numeral for 75. Could it be they are making full use of the set and filming both Victory Tour and 75th Hunger Games related stage appearance on the very same set>

This is the quote which went along with the photos:

“They’re filming a scene from catching fire at the airport we just landed at…
Just saw Jennifer Lawrence!”

[SPOILER ALERT!] Catching Fire sets updates!

With the filming of Catching Fire taking place recently, we are getting more sightings, information of the scenes being filmed and possible spoilers.

I gave a spoiler alert as i felt that it is kind of obvious which scenes in the book that they are going to film. Do proceed with caution if you know that there are certain scenes or places where you want to remain unspoiled till the actual movie! 🙂

(There is a read more as this is sort of spoiler-ish in a way, and that it is really long!)

On an off topic note, we would like to wish all O and A Level students all the best for their upcoming exams! May the questions and odds be ever in your favour! 😀  Read the rest of this entry
