Gary Ross: No Hunger Games without Jennifer Lawrence

In a recent interview with Yahoo! Movies, “The Hunger Games” director Gary Ross has revealed that he would have pulled the plug on the movie if Jennifer Lawrence had missed out on the role of Katniss Everdeen. Speaking in Yahoo! Movies exclusive video he said:

“There was no second choice for me. If I couldn’t make the movie with Jennifer, then I didn’t want to make it. I just knew there was no one who would come close. There was no one who had her strength, her directness, her integrity, her solidity, her bravery, her power or her nuance for emotional depth.”
