Lionsgate and the filmmakers of The Hunger Games officially announced that Academy Award nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence will assume the coveted role of Katniss Everdeen in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novella.
In addition, E! is reporting that “Weeds” hunk (or so I’m to assume based on the array of teen-made fansites) Hunter Parrish is in talks to take the lead male role of “Peeta Mellark”.
The film will be directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force. Collins’ best-selling novel, which has over 3 million copies in print in the United States alone, is the first in a trilogy of science fiction/action novels which have developed a global following.
Lionsgate will release The Hunger Games on March 23, 2012.
“ ‘The Hunger Games’ chronicles a dystopic Capitol which requires its twelve subjugated districts to pay tribute in the form of a teenage boy and girl, forced to participate in the annual ‘Hunger Games,’ a fight-to-the-death live televised event. Katniss Everdeen’s little sister is chosen in the lottery to participate and Katniss volunteers to take her place. Although persevering through hardship is commonplace for Katniss, she must start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love in order to win the games and return home.”
