Francis Lawrence to return for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

News has broken that director Francis Lawrence will return to direct both installments of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay scheduled for 2014 and 2015 releases. Lawrence is currently directing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, so there really is no telling if this is a good or bad thing just yet, so we will have to wait and see.

In a way I am happy about this because the biggest downfall to sagas like this is the constant changing of directors. Take the Twilight saga. Each movie, except for Breaking Dawn 1 & 2, has had a different director. As a result the feel and tone of each film was different and that also takes a toll on how the actors perform. At least that's my opinion. The fact that Francis Lawrence will direct 3 of the 4 Hunger Games films is probably good.
