Hutcherson, Hemsworth the Males Leads in Lionsgate’s ‘The Hunger Games’

Finally something official to report…

Lionsgate has locked both Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth for roles in The Hunger Games, their highly anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular novel. They will star alongside the previously announced Jennifer Lawrence, who will play “Katniss Everdeen”.

Hutcherson, who was nearly cast as Peter Parker in Columbia Pictures’ Spider-Man reboot, will star as “Peeta Mellark”. Hemsworth (Knowing, Triangle) stars as “Gale Hawthorne”.

Gary Ross is directing the pic set in post-apocalyptic America, which introduces 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen, who must participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games. The battles are televised, and pit youths from each of the Capitol’s 12 Districts against each other.

Lionsgate will release on March 23, 2012.
