Deadline New York reports that Lionsgate has met with directors for the first installment to Suzanne Collins’ mega-blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy, including Sam Mendes, David Slade, and Susanna White. But the early lead is said to belong to director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit). Filming is looking for a 2011 start, from a script adapted by Billy Ray (State of Play). The futuristic story describes 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a superb hunter and archer, and her entanglement in a brutal televised competition.
