'I am Legend' Director To Helm 'Hunger Games' Sequel
Since Gary Ross confirmed he would not be directing the sequel to the hugely popular Hunger Games, Catching Fire, speculation has been rife who his successor would be. Well speculate no longer as it seems Lionsgate has gone with I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence.
There has been a handful of names linked with the project, but Lawrence has been the front runner mainly due to the fact he is not tied in to any projects at the moment.
With Catching Fire predicted to hit the theatres on November 22, 2013 it seems Lawrence will have to hit the floor running with the clock already ticking.
