Francis Lawrence Offered ‘Catching Fire’ Director Gig

EW has confirmed that Francis Lawrence has been offered the job to direct The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire.

The I Am Legend helmer — no relation to star Jennifer Lawrence — won the gig over reported contender Bennett Miller (Moneyball), whose commitment to a fall shoot for the biopic Foxcatcher likely ultimately put him out of the running.
