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.

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.

Stanley Tucci discusses The Hunger Games

WSJ recently caught up with Stanley Tucci where he talked about The Hunger Games, Gary Ross and feeling hopeful about Francis Lawrence.  See excerpt from the interview below.

 The Wall Street Journal: What kind of response have you gotten since “Hunger Games” came out? Do you have lots of new young fans?

Stanley Tucci: Without question…. It’s a newer demographic only because the kids who are seeing it now, a lot of them hadn’t seen “The Devil Wears Prada” because they were too young. It’s a similar age but different people. I never anticipate it would be like that. It was my fiancee who said, “you should do this.” I said, “Really?” She said, “Stanley, these books are so successful and they are really good.”

What do “Hunger Games” fans say to you?

My kids play soccer, and you see that the kids on the other team are sort of like, “What’s that guy doing here? Why is he here?” I think they think that you don’t do all the normal stuff. It’s really great. I’m very proud to be in the movie. It was a great experience. It was really one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.


I liked the story a lot. I liked what it has to say for socio-political reasons. I like the fact that the lead character is this incredible, strong young woman. I love Gary Ross.

What are your thoughts on the “Hunger Games” getting a new director, Francis Lawrence?

I’m sad that Gary is not doing it. But I hear this fella is really great. Hopefully Gary will come back and do another one. I [start shooting] the next Hunger Games in October some time.
