Directing round-up: Joe Carnahan teams up with Patrick Wilson; Francis Lawrence to complete The Hunger Games saga

11.01.2012

According to Collider, director Francis Lawrence (CONSTANTINE, I AM LEGEND) is taking on the rest of THE HUNGER GAMES saga.  The filmmaker is currently shooting THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, and has committed to finishing out the series with the final film THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY, which of course is being split into two films. 

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will open November 22, 2013. THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY: PART 1 is due out on November 21, 2014 and THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY: PART 2  is set for November 20, 2015. 

And it looks like Joe Carnahan will re-team with his THE A-TEAM co-star Patrick Wilson for STRETCH.  No details on story or additional cast members, let alone who wrote the sucker, but the announcement is out there.  I thought Wilson was outstanding in THE A-TEAM and fit well with Carnahan's brand.  Carnahan seems to be perpetually juggling projects, what with DEATH WISH, KILLING PABLO, and the now-dead DAREDEVIL reboot, so it's hard to know just what he's going to push out next. 

More as these develop.

Extra Tidbit: What would you most like to see Carnahan direct? I'd rather him forego all of his current projects and, as I've stated in C'mon Hollywood, tackle a Punisher reboot for Marvel, starring none other than Frank Grillo as Frank Castle.
