For what it’s worth I’d love to see you direct Catching Fire because you’ll class it up and put Gary Ross‘s work on The Hunger Games to shame. Suzanne Collins‘ material is so far below your default aesthetic level that it’s not funny, but it’s considered healthy, by industry standards, to take a paycheck job every now and then. Like when Alfonso Cuaron took the Harry Potter/Prisoner of Azkaban gig, which did him no harm.
Is there any hint as to whether you’re really in the loop for this, or are they leaning more toward Alfonso or Cronenberg? Can you tell me anything at all?”
