Christopher Guerrero, president of Wyoma Films, directed the clip, which has gone viral. In fact, there is now talk of doing a longer version of the parody. “Well, a feature-length version wasn’t originally planned but that would be really fun to do,” Guerrero said.
If that doesn’t work out, maybe Guerrero can take over ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise,’ as director Gary Ross has said he may or may not helm the second film. Do you think “Catching Fire,” which would be the next movie in the trilogy, could benefit from more vintage records and skinny jeans?
