The Traffic director has agreed to help his friend as he completes production on the much-anticipated 2012 blockbuster.
Eddie Mills, a production designer on the film, broke the news via a tweet on Wednesday (03Aug11), posting, "Soderbergh in the house this weekend!!! very exciting!"
That message was apparently followed by a tweet from set electrician Chrys Blackstone, which read, "Holy s**t! Just found out that Steven Soderbergh is coming to the #hungergames to direct 2nd Unit. I am so excited this is getting good!" But that tweet has since been taken down and replaced with the post, "Just gained a whole bunch of new real followers... Must be something im tweeting."
