J.Law's Getting a Two-Time Reunion with 'Hunger Games' Director Gary Ross

Gary Ross ditched out "The Hunger Games" franchise while it was still a way hot commodity, leaving the seat toasty warm for director Francis Lawrence to slide in and helm "Catching Fire" and both installments to "Mockingjay."

Ross declared that it was the tight turnaround schedule for movie two which turned him around from wanting to handle the sequel at all, but he never stopped singing the praises of his leading lady Jennifer Lawrence (because obviously).

J.Law herself is a known director loyalist, so if you're one of those who totally hearted the Ross/Lawrence combo pack — yeah, we saw that tribute video — you're doubly in luck because it looks the duo'll team up again for not one but two other book-to-screen adaptations.

Questions and Answers With Wes Bentley

Wes Bentley shot to fame at just 21 years old when he played mysterious boy-next-door Ricky Fitts in the Oscar-winning film, "American Beauty". After a series of personal setbacks throughout his twenties, the 34-year-old actor returned to the big screen — in a big way — as head gamemaker Seneca Crane in 2012's "The Hunger Games". (That beard, though.)

His newest release, "The Time Being", premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and will open in limited theaters July 26. Bentley plays Daniel, a struggling young artist who is given a slew of strange assignments — think: film children in a playground — by a quiet, reclusive millionaire named Warner (Frank Langella). Through this process, Daniel discovers the importance of balancing his personal relationships with his ambitions as an artist.

NextMovie chatted with Bentley via phone prior to the film's release to discuss "The Hunger Games" craziness, his celebrity doppelganger, and why he always seems to get cast as some creepy dude with a camera. Get More »
