August 6, 2011 - The Hunger Games / Steven Soderbergh will do second unit filming
Scooped on Saturday, August 6, 2011
If you follow the films of director Steven Soderbergh, then this piece of news may seem like it's coming from out of left field. The Ocean's Eleven, Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich and Solaris filmmaker was asked by longtime friend/Hunger Games director if he would like to come be the project's second unit director. Soderbergh accepted the job and now he's off to work at his new job.
This kind of thing is really unexpected in the world of moviemaking. Soderbergh has two films in post that he's still working on, Contagion and Haywire, but his connection to Gary Ross and his passion for making movies incredibly fast will be assets to The Hunger Games production. As the site that broke the story points out, The Hunger Games is due in theaters in only seven months.
