The Hunger Games is a series of sci-fi young adult novels written by Suzanne Collins and published by Scholastic that we know from reading the internet all day that people are really excited about. Presumably they’ll be even more excited to learn that Steven Soderbergh is directing the second unit of the movie adaptation. The director is Gary Ross, who directed Pleasantville and Seabiscuit. According to Indiewire, Mr. Soderbergh and Mr. Ross are pals, Mr. Soderbergh works faster than any other director and the movie is due to be finished in only seven months.
