The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 Have Found A Director

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

Collider is reporting they’ve learned the identity of the director for Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay and it’s… 

Francis Lawrence!

That’s right, the director of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is comitting himself to not just one, but two more films. Over the summer we found out the studio was planning on going the Harry Potter/Twilight route and break their franchise’s last installment in two with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 coming out November 21, 2014, followed by The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 on November 20th, 2015.

You may recall Hunger Games director Gary Ross having to pass on Catching Fire because scheduling was too tight. Originally it seemed that would also be the case for Lawrence but not so according to this news from Collider.

Considering Catching Fire hasn’t even finished filming yet, it’s hard to give an opinion on whether or not this is a good thing. Hopefully Lawrence’s visual style won’t be too far off from the first film, otherwise it’s always going to stick out. Then again, maybe that’s a good thing? Regardless, I’m excited to see what Lawrence will make of the scripts for both films by Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Danny Strong.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth is set to hit theaters November 22, 2013.
