UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh will be taking the helm of second unit director for The Hunger Games — for two days, at least.
“It’s true he’s shooting two days of second unit,” director Gary Ross told EW. “He’s one of my best friends and we all help each other a little bit on these things.”
The news was first reported by Indiewire, based on a couple of tweets from Hunger Games crew members — though it took about a day for official channels to verify the reports.
Ross and Soderbergh have worked together in the past, before becoming friends. Soderbergh produced Ross’s film Pleasantville.
