Find someone who can hold the fucking camera steady, please.

Daniel Minahan.

The second book kind of has less of an edge than the first one, in that

Warning: Spoiler for 'Catching Fire' (Click to show)

it has barely any kid-on-kid violence. Except for Katniss and Peta, the cast is mainly made-up of older, adult characters.

 

This could attract directors who might not have considered doing a Hunger Games movie before, but the fact they'd still have to make it PG-13 and with teens in mind probably negates that.

Neil Marshall, please, but he's probably a better fit for Mockingjay.

Old "Shrimp Fat" for the win!

 

Just kidding.

Phillip Noyce.

Alfonso Cuarón would be my first choice judging by his work on Azkaban.

Seriously.  His is the only HP movie worth watching.

Amen to that.

 

I suggested Noyce because he's one of the few journeyman, gun-for-hire directors out there who is pretty consistent.

I would kind of like to see Kathryn Bigelow tackle the hot mess that Mockingjay will be.

Cuaron would be interesting for sure!

Just because Cuaron did a good mid-franchise pick up (for a better series) something like 10 years ago, let's not waste his talent here. Guy's got important shit to do!

Agree with that. Gravity is sounding really interesting. Whether it succeeds or not, he's obviously pushing himself. I don't want to see him tied down to a YA franchise right now.

Bigelow would have been a great choice for this series start to finish.

Should I mention I hate Pleasantville?  Seems like the last time I'll be able to bring that up.

Yes please!  It wouldn't happen, but it would be great if he got some nice big paychecks so that he could do fascinating things after that, forever.  Sci-fi dystopia is kinda in his wheelhouse too.

I don't think Bigelow is interested in this sort of thing right now. If I'm correct, after Hurt Locker she was offered a few genre projects, including The Amazing Spider-Man (some studios are obviously trying to get another "Christopher Nolan result") , and turned them down.

You never know. Every director at one time or another likes to play with a big budget. Then again, K-19 was her biggest and didn't do her any favors.

Since no one really got your reference, I'll second it with evidence (and add he's directed solid episodes of nearly every HBO show from Six Feet Under to Deadwood to Game of Thrones):

I kinda love Plseantville, and if you think about it the themes suggest Ross as a perfect choice for The Hunger Games. But he directed it like he didn't give a fuck, so there goes that. The hand held camera shit got so tiring after a while. What a horrible choice.

If The Hunger Games was shot by somebody with chops like Bigelow, this movie would have been one of the best of 2012 for me up there with The Grey.  Instead it's a decent movie that looks like it was made for TV.  Bigelow has a kind of grace and perfectionism that Hunger BADLY needed.
