Lionsgate Confirms Francis Lawrence Will Direct Mockingjay Films
Hold onto your hats, kids because some CRAZY news just came out. Today Lionsgate tweeted that Francis Lawrence is tapped to direct Mockingjay part 1 and 2. This is a little shocking given that sources said a few months ago they would be looking for two separate directors for Mockingjay due to its short schedule.
There doesn't seem to be a press release at the moment, but because Lionsgate News has tweeted it, this makes it official!
On one hand it is a little worrisome due to the fact we have not seen his take on Catching Fire yet, and on the other we are pretty stoked because one director for Catching Fire, Mockingjay Part 1, and Part 2 means CONTINUITY!
What are your thoughts, guys? Are you happy with this news?
