Movie News! Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss: The Hunger Games Movie

The Hunger Games was a mixer of feelings good and bad (mostly good) and when I heard a few months ago that they were making Hunger Games into a movie I didn't know what to feel. I just hope they can pull it off and not mess up. This is my second favorite series and I would hate to see it go down the toilet. annouced the girl that will be playing Katniss and her name is Jennifer Lawrence, who is 20-years-old and blond.

From The Wrap: The studio plans the franchise as a trilogy which will include "The Hunger Games," "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay," based on the best-selling young adult books by Suzanne Collins.

Lawrence will play the role of Katniss, a girl who joins a survival contest in order to save her community. The story takes place in the future, where teenagers are chosen by lottery to compete to the death in gladiator-like spectacles, the Hunger Games. Alex Pettyfer, who plays John in "I Am Number Four," is rumored to be under consideration for the role of Peeta Mellark, as are Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right," "Bridge to Terabithia") and Hunter Parrish ("Weeds"). Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit") is directing the movie, which will debut on March 23, 2012. Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "State of Play") wrote the screenplay. Nina Jacobson, Jim Miller and Alli Shearmur are producing.
