In case you haven’t heard, they’re turning The Hunger Games into a live-action film. And in case you haven’t heard, that’s, like, a pretty big deal. Currently jockeying for position at the top of the list of films looking to become "the next Twilight," The Hunger Games has already pleased its growing fanbase by casting Jennifer Lawrence in the role of Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as the film’s male lead, Peeta Mellark. Now, various reports have added a few more to the growing ensemble, including Elizabeth Banks (as Effie Trinkett), as well as newcomers Dayo Okeniyi and Amandla Stenberg as District 10 members Thresh and Rue.
