Though the Hunger Games Powers That Be were reportedly considering a new director for the finale, Collider reports that Francis Lawrence — who is currently directing Catching Fire — will also direct the two-part conclusion to the franchise. Mockingjay I and II will debut in 2014 and 2015, so, do not invite Francis Lawrence on an extended Caribbean cruise or anything for the next three years. He's got plans.
