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.

The Hunger Games
Elizabeth Banks is playing Effie in the Hunger Games! I LOVE THIS! [BLOCKED WEBSITE]
VERY excited for this movie!
Hey guess what whoever wrote this article?? Rue and Thresh are from District 11...just sayin'.
I liked the first one A LOT. The second one was slow in the beginning, but it got better as it went on. The third one was OK (It kind of felt like being trapped in a schitzofrenic's head at some parts.) A movie adaptation could be great... or it could be lame.
Jennifer Lawrence does not match katniss what so ever !!!!!!! but Josh Hutcherson completely matches peeta

Uh don't think so. It has to be well known to be a big deal. And this? Never heard of it.
Josh Hutcherson doesn't seem right for the role. I have like 4 chapters left til I'm done with the first book, he is way too young and doesn't look the role of Peeta. Jennifer Lawrence is cool, she's beautiful and can be serious and deadly at the same time. As for the rest of the cast, it seems workable. Didn't imagine Thresh as a black guy, the way they described him it made him sound more of a huge "Dwayne The Rock Johnson," type of race, simoin or however you spell it. But just by looking at him he looks like he could pull off Thresh, as for Rue she looks perfect for the role. So all in all I'm alright with the casting. At least it'll be better casting, a better storyline and a better movie than the Twilight films.
Josh Hutcherson has the right personality for the part he just does not look right to play Peeta.
Jennifer Lawrence, eehhh... maybe.
Josh Hutcherson, BOSS!!!!
Amazing series. I hope that they do it justice.
I can't wait ........I do book reports in my 5th graders class and a student did Hunger Games .....after hearing it ....I read the first book and was hooked .....read books 2 & 3 in one weekend. Can't wait until the movie comes out
