Steven Soderbergh Helming Second Unit For ‘The Hunger Games’

Now, while the second unit director may not get the biggest amount of publication, not every second unit director is one of today’s most interesting filmmakers.

The Playlist uncovered a tweet from production designer Eddie Mills revealing that director Steven Soderbergh is apparently shooting second unit for the upcoming Gary Ross-directed film, The Hunger Games.

Soderbergh has gone on the record many times revealing that he does have every intention in the world in retiring somewhere in the near future, but with this and the cavalcade of projects he has currently on his slate (ranging from the upcoming thriller Contagion to the remake The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), we’ll still be seeing quite a bit from the filmmaker.

Hunger Games is easily one of the most talked about franchise projects that Hollywood has to offer, and while all we’ve got so far is a ton of casting news and the occasional photos, you can expect the marketing machine to get into full force prior to the film’s March 23, 2012 release date.

  1. Good to hear… this series needs to be treated as something more than “Twilight for Dystopian Teenagers.”
