I started reading the trilogy about a month before the movie came out & i simply loved it! Truly amazing books, quickly became a fan, but i’m still on Mockingjay. Anyways, your adaption of The Hunger Games was amazing also, it had what it was supposed to have from the book, & you managed to make it possible for everyone. When i heard you are not directing i was very surprised & upset, that went for the rest of the cast. Without you as director for the rest of the trilogy, it will not be the same, please don’t have it end up like Twilight (where each of the movies had different directors & sometimes different producers). We need you, we love you, you should work out something with Fox (the studio behind X-men sequel, thats getting in the way) & Lionsgate, so everybody especially you wins. Josh Hutcherson needs you, Jennifer Lawrence needs you, we all do!. Us fans together will try to make our mission come true! Dont Mess With Success, You GARY ROSS Is The Boss!
With it being official that Gary Ross is not coming back for Catching Fire. I would just like to say Thank You. You brought one of my favorite books to life in a more incredible way then I ever imagined. I know I’m speaking for most if not all fans when I say you will be deeply missed! Tributes will support your forever for doing what you did for us Gary! <3 The three finger salute means thanks, it means admiration and it means good by to someone you love, We Will Miss You Gary! <3
If I personally knew you I would give you the biggest hug ever and say thank you….But I don’t know you. So I’m just gonna have to go with this.
I had doubts about the Hunger Games coming to life but you proved all of them wrong. You did everything right from the moment you chose to direct the Hunger Games. The cast and crew says you were the best director ever and I have to agree. I love you and thank you for all the amazing work you’ve done and I’ll never forget you for making the Hunger Games what it is today. You have proven time and time again that you’re a fan just like all of us and for that I thank you so much for doing what no one else could! Thank you so much. For real. That’s like the millionth time I said it but really, you’ve done so much. I three-finger salute you because it means thanks, it means admiration, it means goodbye to someone you love. And now…I’m just crying…Because you were perfect.
I’m not sure if this message goes out to post on this website, but if it does, I need to say: Thank you Gary Ross. I don’t think I could describe it in any other words. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It would take me forever to explain my full amount of thanks I feel <3
Dear Gary Ross,
I cannot express in words the thanks and appreciation I have for you. You have made my favorite book in the world into a movie that represents it perfectly. The message of the book is so important, and I was afraid it would get lost in the movie, but thanks to you it didn’t. Even if the Catching Fire movie is stunning and I love it, I’ll always wonder, every time I watch it, what your version would have looked like and that’s the saddest thing of all. Katniss says the three finger gesture from her district “means thanks. It means admiration. It means goodbye to someone you love” so without further ado:
A humble fan
P.S. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dear Gary Ross,
I love how you did the The Hunger Games! It was PERFECT! It was just like the movies and I felt like I was there with them the whole time. when I read the book everything I imagined was in the movie! You did perfect. Its sad you’re not doing the next one or any of them again! I really wished it was you filming all of them!
Even if the Catching Fire movie is stunning and I love it, I’ll always wonder, every time I watch it, what Gary’s version would have looked like and that’s the saddest thing of all.
He’s got to continue or there’s no other way! The first film was sensational and it was worthy of representing the first book, so if that’s an example of his future work for the other two books… It’s promising! Why can’t we let him take it from there? Gary Ross should stay, work on the other films, and make it sucker punch the charts like it did with the first movie
