What a stressful fucking day.

I’m going to have a panic attack before it’s over with.  Vicarious anxiety is a bitch.

[UPDATE]

Gary Ross is not directing Catching Fire.  Fuck.

Personal Stress Gary Ross Just when you think it can't get any worse

Gary Ross said he and Suzanne Collins are already thinking about casting for Catching Fire. Gary teased saying, “I already decided who I want!” for Finnick Odair.

Quotable quotes from the April 2012 Issue of “Sci Fi”: 
Josh Hutcherson on his favorite sequence in the movie: “I loved the [arena] cave stuff. All of the stuff in the cave was my favorite part to shoot and my favorite parts I’ve seen as well. At that point you really get to see Katniss and Peeta’s relationship takes a big turn and a lot of the meat of their arc happens in those cave sequences. For me as an actor, that was really fun to play because you get to do the big arc of the character right there as well as knowing it’s going to be satisfying for the audience to see those beloved, very tender, real, emotional moments played on the screen.”
Josh Hutcherson talks about the marketing campaign for The Hunger Games: “All in all, [the cornucopia] is what the big marketing campaign is going to be. It’s almost like the audience and viewers that come to see the movie are almost like members of the Capitol and members of the Districts where they have to actually wait until the movie comes out to see what happens in the games. Everything leading up to the games and building the characters and showing the world that the games will take place in, that’s what we’ll show everybody to get amped up for the games themselves which is the movie. It’s a big build up to the games so people will want to come see it for that element.”
Gary Ross on the point of Katniss Everdeen:“[In the film] I think it would have been a mistake to split the narrative apart and get out of Katniss’ point of view. Obviously we have the ability to cut away and do that, more than anything in the Game Center. I think the largest departure from the book was that Katniss imagines many times how the Gameskeepers must be messing with her and wonders what they’re doing to manipulate the arena. We have the ability to actually cut to them doing that as we don’t have the ability to shoot inside Katniss’ head and express those things. It was a logical choice to actually film that and imbue that action with the actual locations and how the Gameskeepers are behaving. We can’t shoot in her head but we can film their actions so probably within the Game Center that was the largest departure that we made.”
Gary Ross on casting other tributes for the film: “With the Tributes it was an audition process just like anyone else. There are a lot of talented people in the world who want to read for you. When Dayo (Okeniyi) walked in and was reading for Thresh I said, ‘Oh my God, he makes absolute sense.’ There are times when they’re reading and it feels like an audition and then there’s the moment when someone comes in and nails it and you feel they want the movie and when that happens you know it’s the right decision.”

Cave scene.

Tender meat?
