The Hunger Games Director Gary Ross Interview (Video)

Gary Ross Recalls Being "Knocked Out" by the Hunger Games Scene Jennifer Lawrence Auditioned With

Director Gary Ross is already getting overwhelmingly positive reviews for his big-screen interpretation of The Hunger Games, and when we spoke with him at a recent press day in Beverly Hills, he told us his vision of his film fell into place when he saw Jennifer Lawrence audition and was "transformed." He reflected on the scene she so impressed him with and also shared some stories about working with his kids — both of whom were big fans of the book — on set. We also asked Gary to talk about making the tough decisions about storylines from the text that wouldn't make it to the big screen. Check out our interview and see The Hunger Games in theaters on March 23!
