Liam Hemsworth Expresses Sadness Over Gary Ross’ Exit from ‘Catching Fire’


Liam Hemsworth has finally spoken out about the director shakeup for The Hunger Games series.

The Aussie actor spoke out to E! saying, “The last I heard the new director (Lawrence) had just come on, so that’s really cool. I’m excited about that. I think we shoot the last few months of this year.”

He continued, “I’m really sad to see that Gary’s not going to be part of the second one,” he said. “He did such an amazing job on the first.”

“I think that there’s still so many people a part of it that want the film to be great and care about it so much that they’re not going to bring the wrong person on.”

It was announced last month that Francis Lawrence would be taking over the reigns for Catching Fire.
