Personal Quote:

[on minimizing the use of special effects in directing The Hunger Games (2012)] We would be doing exactly what the Capitol is doing if we used 3D.

Trivia:

Has completed writing the script "Sea Biscuit", which he will soon produce and direct. Has completed another script "Dog Years", which is currently on hold. See more »
