Gary Ross Officially Exits Catching Fire, The Hunger Games Sequel
by Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz on April 12, 2012

The Hollywood Reporter is officially reporting that Gary Ross, director of The Hunger Games, is reporting that Gary Ross has officially exited its sequel Catching Fire.

“As a writer and a director, I simply don’t have the time I need to write and prep the movie I would have wanted to make because of the fixed and tight production schedule,” he was quoted as saying Tuesday.

What does this mean? Ross departing is a significant blow but not one that’ll kill the franchise. The Hunger Games is having a remarkable run at the box office and a new director wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. The Twilight films have had different directors per film and haven’t missed a beat box office wise and Harry Potter changed directors and didn’t miss a beat either.

What do you think? I’ve already speculated as to who would take over if Ross did exit, which you can view here, but who do you think would be the best choice to step in? Let us know below.
