Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth och Gary Ross kommer att vara på omslaget av nästa nummer av The Hollywood Reporter. Urdrag ur intervjuerna kommer nedan ett urdrag av bilderna (alla 14 kan ni se här), plus 9 saker som ni kanske inte visste om Hungerspelen, checka in de 9 sakerna här.

On Gary Ross being chosen as director:

So Ross came prepared. “I had seven or eight concept artists put boards together,” he recalls, “and I interviewed my kids and a lot of their friends to hear what they thought about the book.”

For two hours, he laid out his vision, helped by stacks of images from artists including Max Beckmann that he’d lined around the walls and by the short film featuring his teenage twins, Claudia and Jack, explaining why the book meant so much to them.

“You could really feel his passion,” says producer Nina Jacobson, “and it was channeled through the young people in his life.”

Gary Ross on why he chose to stick with The Hunger Games, despite the high stakes:

Why would Ross want to deal with this when the nearly two years he’d spend on the movie would wrench him away from his family and pay $3 million to $4 million, a pittance in Hollywood terms? “I hadn’t seen a piece of material that touched the culture and moved me the same way in a very long time,” he explains. “And if you fully commit, you fully commit.”

Jennifer Lawrence on her initial hesitation to accept the role of Katniss:

“It was the middle of the night in England, and I was in bed when I got the call,” she remembers. “I was so in love with the books and the script, and suddenly it was right in my face — and the size of the decision was terrifying.”

On the difficulties of shooting on location:

Then there were the bears, some 300 living in the woods, that would come out at the slightest scent of food. And there was the 100-degree heat and rain that showered daily, almost precisely at 4 p.m., at least allowing Ross an opportunity to give his team a break. Between the rain and losing light early behind the trees, “we’d only get to shoot four or five hours a day,” he says.

That tracker-jacker scene we’ve been hearing so much about:

In the darkness, he shows me the almost-finished scene where Katniss attempts to climb that tree with the tracker-jacker nest. The lush setting, with the sound of nature pulsating around her, makes it riveting.
