Now in glorious Technicolor

Cinematical informs me that Lionsgate Films is pondering three directors for their upcoming Hunger Games movie adaptation: Gary Ross (Pleasantville), David Slade (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), and Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition). They've also taken the original script—which was written by Suzanne Collins herself—and turned it over to a professional scriptwriter for a second draft.

Sounds like things are moving right along, although I suspect my enthusiasm for this project will depend heavily on casting, and only slightly less heavily on whether or not I can avoid seeing it in 3D. I'm sorry, but there are some things I really don't need to see flying out at me....
