Six More Directors Circle to Tell the Story of Warners’ Gangster Squad.
The shortlist of directors for Lionsgate’s upcoming first installment of the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel THE HUNGER GAMES has fast become the must-land hot spot for directors, much akin to how the race for the Lisbeth Salander role was for GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. The project, which is being given early hype due to an excellent sales count on the novel side of things, has also been being the praise of being “the next Twilight, but with an edge.” So, exactly who are the directors Lionsgate thinks can deliver…?
Logline: Pitched as a martial arts retelling of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, the tale follows Olivia Snow in 1890s Hong Kong, as she returns to attend her father’s funeral, only to discover her mother is plotting against her. Forced to flee to stay alive Snow escapes to mainland China, where she seeks solace with seven Shao Lin monks who, in turn, come to believe the woman holds the fate of the world in her hands.
