Finally a bit of The Hunger Games casting news that I care about.
Elizabeth Banks (SLiTHER) is in talks to star as “Effie Trinket,” the flaky bureaucrat who escorts her district’s young death-match contestants to their fate.
She joins the previously announced Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Dayo Okeniyi, and Amandla Stenberg in the pic based on the bestselling young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins, set in a dystopian future where a young woman joins a survival contest to save her community.
Having originally been pitched as Battle Royale meets Running Man, recently the word Twilight forced its way into the mix. Meh.
