Gary Ross WILL NOT Return to Direct Catching Fire

This is not some kind of sick belated April Fools Day joke.

Gary Ross gave official notice to Summit and Lionsgate earlier this week that he will not be returning to direct Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. While many say the motivation behind this move is based on money some think it’s much more then that. Gary may not have wanted to spend another three to four films following Katniss’s story.

Personally, I feel like it is about money, which kind of annoys me. Apparently the project he’s working on will earn him a better payday then Catching Fire. And the offer from Lionsgate to direct the film was lower then he had expected. So we’re sure it’s not about money(sarcasm intended).

We hope to hear from Lionsgate on the matter soon.
