Stanley Tucci Talks Gary Ross, Catching Fire

In a recent interview with Collider Stanley Tucci discusses the difference between working with Gary Ross and Francis Lawrence, and how it felt to come back for the sequel.

Premiere Of Screen Gems' "Burlesque" - Arrivals

Jumping into something else, The Hunger Games switched directors to Francis Lawrence and I’m curious what was it like working with him on the next film?

TUCCI: He was great, he’s lovely.  I think Gary [Ross] did such an amazing and Gary’s such a nice guy.  They’re very different directors and personalities.  Gary’s very garrulous and Francis is very quiet, but he’s very talented and I had a really nice time with him.

Obviously people have read the book, but what can you tease people about the next one?

TUCCI: [Laughs] I can’t, I really can’t, I’m sworn to secrecy number one, but also you have to remember I’m only there for a week and I shoot all my stuff on a stage and then that’s it, so I’m not even privy to what’s going on.

The Hunger Games is a huge franchise now. Were there any difference for you in terms of when you’re making the first one you’re not really sure if anyone’s going to come out for the movie, then it comes out and it’s this massive hit. Did you feel any pressure going back for the sequel?  Or was it sort of like you did it and you can do it again?

TUCCI: Yeah, I think that’s what you feel, you just want to do it as well again, that’s all.  You never want to rest on your laurels.  You just want to give it 100% every time.

Earlier today, Capitol Couture released the first character portrait for Catching Fire of the delectable Effie Trinkett. The result being a resounding response of oohs and aahs! Well, just now, at 3pm PST they have revealed a second in conjunction with Fandango! Take a look!




What do you guys think, were you right in guessing that it was Caesar Flickerman?
