Joss Whedon or Drew Goddard For ‘Catching Fire’?
At Tuesday night’s premiere of Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’ss new flick ‘Cabin in the Woods’ Showblitz cheekily asked Joss and Drew whether they might be directing ‘Catching Fire’..
“You know, I love the books and I really love the movie…I think Gary Ross [did] them all beautifully, and who wouldn’t want to work with that cast, honestly? And I think the second book is really exciting. But I’ve been walking in somebody else’s world for a long time. I’ve spent the last two years doing that and watching ‘Cabin’ reminds me what it’s like when something comes purely from your own brain, how much fun that is. It’d be tempting as hell, not that they’d necessarily ask, but no, I feel like it’s time to go back into the ‘Insane-o’ place and see what else comes out.”
“I love Lionsgate so much that if they come to me with anything, I will always listen, because I can’t say enough good things about this company. I love them! I love the books and I loved the movie. I thought Gary did a phenomenal job and I’m excited to see part two.”
So I guess that’s a no But, as the saying goes, it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings! Guess we will all just have to sit tight and see who ends up helming ‘Catching Fire’.
