Speaking last night at the GLAAD Media Awards, Josh Hutcherson (who plays Peeta in The Hunger Games) shared some brief thoughts on the news that Francis Lawrence will direct Catching Fire.

Said Hutcherson to THR:

“I’m excited to meet him,” Hutcherson said of newly named Catching Fire director, Francis Lawrence. “I’ve heard amazing things about him, so it’s gonna be a fun ride.”

The day before Gary Ross had left Catching Fire, the actor notably said that there was no choice but Ross for the film.
