I was certain the next bit of information on The Hunger Games adaption was going to be the official choice to direct, but it looks as though we're even further from that decision because now three more names are being added to the list of potentials. The news comes from Deadline who originally reported that Gary Ross, Sam Mendes and David Slade were the final three, but now is saying that Andrew Adamson, Rupert Sanders and Susanna White are being considered as well.

Odds are the new additions are far less familiar names than the original trio. Sanders is busy working on his first feature film, an Appian Way-produced thriller The Low Dweller, but you might have already caught some of his other work. Sanders is an award-winning commercial director and the man responsible for the Halo 3: ODST spot released back in September of 2009. While that commercial is quite impressive, as are the advertisements he did for Halo 3 Believe and Monster.com, Adamson is the one with more relevant experience. He directed both Shrek and Shrek 2, but it's his time spent working on the first two Chronicles of Narnia films that would likely help him tackle The Hunger Games. Lastly we've got White who's got a handful of shorts and TV shows to her name as well as the recent release Nanny McPhee Returns.
