Since the news was broken earlier this week that Gary Ross will not be directing the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, they’ve quickly spun together a shortlist of directors that they want to do the film, and one of them is David Cronenberg.
This has to be very wishful thinking on their part, but Cronenberg has surprised us before (who’d have thought he would have gone from being the king of body horror to bringing us stark and brilliant dramas that feature Viggo?), so it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that he might at least consider a very commercial property that is a sure thing to be successful.
Then he could have enough pull to dust off that Fly sequel script that some of us want him to do. Hopefully also starring Viggo.
