EXCLUSIVE: Josh Hutcherson Leaves 'The Hunger Games' Behind to Direct His Own Future
The 24-year-old actor opens up to ET about his directorial debut and trading blockbusters for indie films.

“Because The Hunger Games was something that was so big and mainstream, I really did want to try to find characters and stories that were more independent, because that’s where my heart had always laid. Which are hard to come by! I’ve been very selective over the last few years and, thankfully, because Hunger Games was successful, I was able to kind of recoil back and field everything and wait for that right thing to come along.”
