11 Possible Directors That Should Continue The ‘Hunger Games’

With Gary Ross officially exiting The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, Lionsgate and Summit will need to scramble to find out who will helm the next in the franchise. We’ve cobbled together a list of our top eleven picks and while some our clearly dream choices, if they hand it over to any of these directors, we’ll certainly be content. Check out our list below and let us know your choices.

Bill Condon
Yours truly did not see Breaking Dawn: Part 1, but reviews have credited Condon for taking a pulpy, silly work and at least doing *something* with it. Now, his reported decision to camp things up wouldn’t jibe with more serious (and generally respected) source material, but, at the very least, Breaking Dawn shows he has an understanding of said source. Condon’s already done good work with good material (Kinsey, Dreamgirls); give him another crack at it and see what happens.
Rupert Sanders
A wild card. None of us have seen his pending debut, Snow White and the Huntsman, but it looks as though he’s concocted something with scale, rousing adventure and an interesting universe all its own. As with Joe Cornish and his personal skill with characters, Sanders – again, thanks to Collins – will have these qualities ready and waiting for his own input. While I hope not to regret this choice in a couple of months’ time, so strong are the early indicators that I feel generally confident here.
