It's a real shame when directors who do a good job on the first part of a pre-set trilogy don't stick around. If they do it gives each film a sense of continuity, where they'll all be made to the same values and with the same eye (Lord of the Rings for example) and while it does work with things like Aliens - both Scott and Cameron did superb jobs, that's because they are two separate films using the same principle character.

I was'nt statisfied with The Hunger Games movie. But that's properly because i read the book before i wen't to see it. But anyway, here are my favorite directors for the job:

Steven Spielberg
Peter Jackson (He's so good with epic stories)
Ridley Scott (Let's hope for more blood this time)

Of course, still needs to be suitable for it's main target audience!

It's a shame Gary Ross isn't stying on - I thought he did a good job but fair play to him, some directors just don't go in for sequels/whole franchises I guess.

Hard to argue with your suggested alternatives, all the usual suspects, respected directors. Depends who's free I guess, can't imagine they'll want to wait long before starting the next one!

LotR was a little different, in that all three films were filmed in one long shoot.

I wasn't interested in the HUNGER GAMES in the first place, but seeing the way talent gets treated in today's corporate movie sphere always does my head in. This guy just directed a movie, embraced by the fans, that did booku business, and yet he's cast aside for no other reason (one assumes) than his paycheck would have risen were they to bring him back. They know the tweens reading these books don't know or care about the art of film, so they can just plug in whatever music video / commercial director happens to have free time in their schedule without negatively impacting the box office. The HUNGER fans don't care about the talent behind the camera, as long as lip service is paid to the notion that their beloved tome will be treated as holy scripture.

But Alfonso Cuaron is a great director for adding intelligence and maturity. He did fix a lot of the Harry Potter problems so he might actually be someone Lionsgate should pursue.

He did do a great job but Alfonso Cuaron could be a fantastic choice :)
