INTERVIEW: Liam Hemsworth on Gary Ross' exit from The Hunger Games franchise: "I'm really sad"

E! Online caught up with Liam Hemsworth at City Year's 2nd annual spring break event this weekend and asked his thought about Gary Ross's exit from The Hunger Games franchise, and how excited he is to film Catching Fire.

Liam Hemsworth is (finally) opening up about Francis Lawrence replacing Gary Ross as director of The Hunger Games followup, Catching Fire.
Though Hemsworth says he doesn’t know exactly when Catching Fire actually begins filming… 
“The last I heard the new director (Lawrence) had just come on, so that’s really cool,” the Aussie actor told us this weekend at City Year’s second annual Spring Break event. “I’m excited about that. I think we shoot the last few months of this year.”
Not that Hemsworth is happy to see Ross go. 
“I’m really sad to see that Gary’s not going to be part of the second one,” he said. “He did such an amazing job on the first.” 
But don’t get too worried. Hemsworth said, “I think that there’s still so many people a part of it that want the film to be great and care about it so much that they’re not going to bring the wrong person on.”
