Josh Hutcherson 'Extremely Sad' Gary Ross Not Returning to 'Games'

Earlier this month, Josh Hutcherson was adamant in his belief that Gary Ross was the only guy for the director job of "Catching Fire." Obviously, after a whirlwind of Ross stepping down and Francis Lawrence stepping up to the plate, we have to wonder what Peeta has to say about the swap.

"I literally don't think I've talked to someone on the phone and they've sounded more upset than he was," Hutcherson told MTV at CinemaCon. He speaks to Ross' schedule conflicts with getting the script and the cast in place in time for an August shoot date.

The Boy with the Bread also spoke to his faith in Lawrence, so we're sure the rest of the cast and fan base will surely follow suit. He's already got our vote.
