“I volunteer as director!” yelled out one brave soul during the Reaping for the Third and Fourth Hunger Games.

So may write Hunger Games novelist Suzanne Collins, if she covered entertainment news like we do and covered today’s Collider report that Francis Lawrence will direct both the third and fourth films in the series, both based on the final Hunger Games book, Mockingjay.

(In case you missed it, screenwriter and Buffy alum Danny Strong has been chosen to script the Mockingjay movies.)

This isn’t a huge surprise, since the same guy is busy directing the second movie, Catching Fire.

In addition to these blockbusters, the 42-year-old has also directed I Am Legend, Water for Elephants, the pilot episode of Touch, and a boatful of music videos.

May the odds be ever in his favor!
