Francis Lawrence, director of I Am Legend, has been tapped as the director of the second installment of The Hunger Games, replacing Gary Ross, who is reportedly busy with another film. Multiple reports today speculated that the race was down to Lawrence and Bennett Miller, who did Moneyball, but a source involved with the negotiations says definitively that the job has gone to Lawrence.
