Liam Hemsworth (who plays Gale in The Hunger Games), spoke to E! Online about Gary Ross leaving The Hunger Games, due to time restraints.
“The last I heard the new director (Lawrence) had just come on, so that’s really cool,” the Aussie actor told us this weekend at City Year’s second annual Spring Break event. “I’m excited about that. I think we shoot the last few months of this year.”
Not that Hemsworth is happy to see Ross go.
“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.”
But don’t get too worried. Hemsworth said, “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.”

Much of the cast seems to be commenting on Gary Ross leaving.I think it would have been wonderful to have One Vision for the entire series, but it appears we will have at least two, with Francis Lawrence stepping in.
