Jennifer Lawrence is unstoppable. She's got two franchises and one Oscar under her belt, and she's ready to work again with the first 'Hunger Games' director Gary Ross on two upcoming projects, both adaptations of novels. The duo are set to work on a redo of John Steinbeck's 'East of Eden' and Hannah Kent's 'Burial Rites.'

After last week's announcement that Gary Ross was out of 'The Hunger Games' sequel 'Catching Fire,' word came quickly that his demise was greatly exaggerated. But now we've heard that this matter has been settled and that Ross is out for good this time. I don't think there's a take back option here. Gary Ross is not directing 'Catching Fire.'

Yesterday, we reported that director Gary Ross was officially and definitively off the 'Hunger Games' sequel, 'Catching Fire.' Now, it's being reported that he's not out of the running quite yet. Now we can stop playing the "who will direct 'Catching Fire'?" game and go back to the "will Gary Ross return to Panem?" game.

You too, Lionsgate? It looks like Gary Ross is going to have to really fight the studio to direct 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' if he wants to return for the sequel. After doing such a wonderful job with 'The Hunger Games,' it's sad to see that Lionsgate isn't particularly keen on signing up the film's writer/director to the sequel right away. The question is, Why are they so hesitant to bring the seasoned director back on board?
