Gary Ross Explains Why He Added New Scenes to The Hunger Games


We’ve had glimpses of several deviations from the book in The Hunger Games movie, most prominently this addition of President Snow and Seneca Crane talking.

Director Gary Ross talks to Hot Hits on why he decided to add these new scenes:

“I wrote those scenes and I showed them to Suzanne, and she loved them,” he said. “I think that Suzanne would have loved to be able to cut away from Katniss as times, but she’s in a first person narrative so she can’t.”

He continued, “And Donald wrote me these letters that were so compelling about the character that they inspired me to add these scenes. And they were really about a lot of the reasons for the Games, where they came from, how they were instrumental in political control, who Snow was in regard to all that. And it made such a tonne of sense to me.”
