Gary Ross, director of hit new movie The Hunger Games, has reportedly turned down the opportunity to direct the sequel, Catching Fire.
Earlier in the week, rumours suggested that Ross, who has previously apologised to fans for cuts made to the first movie, was demanding a significant salary increase but sources now say money was never the issue.
According to The Playlist, the director is keen to move on to a personal project, the script of which he has written himself, and has therefore opted out of Catching Fire.
A production insider told the publication that producers at Summit and Lionsgate have already been informed of Ross's decision to leave the franchise.
The Hunger Games is already proving one of the year's biggest cinema hits and has topped the UK box office for the last two weeks.
It is thought Catching Fire will be in cinemas in 2013.
