The Hollywood Reporter isn’t the only media outlet to ask Josh Hutcherson about his thoughts on Gary Ross directing Catching Fire.
We reported earlier that Josh told THR, “I think Gary’s the man. Gary is in my mind is the only one that could ever direct the second one. That’s what I’m sticking to.”
ComingSoon.net also had the chance to talk with Josh today, and here’s what the actor told them about his expectations for Gary to return for the second movie.
“There is not much doubt in my mind he’ll be doing it. I think so. I don’t think there’s a chance he won’t,” Hutcherson told us. The actor, who plays Peeta, added: ”He killed the first one, absolutely knocked it out of the park. Everyone loved him. Myself, Jennifer and the others loved him. I couldn’t imagine making another movie without him, so that’s what I have to say about that…” [smiles]
He seems so optimistic about Gary returning; here’s hoping he’s right! If not, we expect someone from Lionsgate will be talking with him soon …
Nameberry, a website devoted to baby naming, is seeing an increase this year in names made popular by the Hunger Games.
Rue – Credit The Hunger Games, which has turned the spotlight on a range of exotic botanical names for girls, from the heroine’s name Katniss to gentle Primrose to Posy and Clove. But the hottest choice for babies, according to the Nameberry statistics, is sleek, simple, if somewhat mournful Rue, the name of the agile young girl who meets a tragic end in the series. In real life, however, we see Rue as having a bright future.
Cato – Cato might be a villain in The Hunger Games, but the popular series turned attention on a name that fits into a couple of other hot trends. It’s an ancient Roman name that, like brothers Atticus and Cassius, is being resurrected by modern parents. It’s got the stylish O ending. And it kind of sounds like Kate, a name in the spotlight thanks to the new future Queen of England.
