Not all that long ago it was Emma Roberts (I think) and before that, Dianna Agron. He does have a reputation of being an arrogant jerk. Even if he was super talented, that wouldn't be cool, but he's marginal at best. I'd think it would be better to act like a professional. Obviously, I'm not a fan!
    LOL never said he wasn't a tool. Your post made me laugh, I do agree that having your name right above a body part is pretty bad.

    Catching Fire may be delayed and, as it always is in Hollywood, it's about money. Apparently, Gary Ross is asking for A LOT more money to direct: Hunger Games Sequel Catching Fire Could Be Delayed, but Why?! - E! Online

    Yes, he won't be returning as director for the second film. I'm ok with it. I think he did a good job, but not such a fantastic job that noone else could possibly direct it. Harry Potter had a number of directors and the franchise didn't suffer. Twilight has also had a different director since the first film. To me it's most important that Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson come back for the sequel.

    I thought Woody was very good in this too, even though he doesn't physically resemble the description of Haymitch in the books at all. I will say that I enjoyed him in Zombieland. I was surprised at how good he was in that.

    ITA CCL - the franchise should be fine with a different director. As long as Suzanne Collins is involved, I think the sequels will be fine. Really, as long as the script is strong, I think there are a number of directors who would do a fine job.

    Re: The Hunger Games

    Interesting that he won't be directing it but if his heart's not in it, I'm more than okay with him opting out. As you mentioned, CCL, Twilight and Harry Potter did just fine when they switched directors and as Critical mentioned, it's all about the script (since I think we all agree the actors did a fantastic job with their characters!), so I think they'll be okay.

    I was heartened to read that Suzanne Collins has already received the script and that the screenwriter looks forward to collaborating with her and tweaking it according to her wishes!
