News - Hunger Games Movie Adaptation (1)

Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) will play the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games, based on the bestselling novels by Suzanne Collins, the Wrap reported. Lionsgate "plans the franchise as a trilogy which will include The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. Gary Ross (Seabiscuit) is directing the film, which will debut on March 23, 2012."

Several actors are rumored to be under consideration for the role of Peeta Mellark, including Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four), Josh Hutcherson (The Kids Are All Right, Bridge to Terabithia) and Hunter Parrish (Weeds), the Wrap wrote.

What do you think about the choice of main actress, my fellow bloggers? I would really like to know your opinion! 
Personally I have mixed feelings. Jennifer Lawarence is a good actress and she proved this in Winter's Bone (even though, I admit, I fell asleep while watching the movie... u_u) but I am not sure if this is how I imagined Katniss to look like. But then again, who would fit the role better? 
So, who in your opinion should play Peeta? What about Gale? 
Please leave your opinion in the comments below, I would love to know what you all think!

She's very blonde. I think everyone's hoping for some hair dye. I hear that she has some awesome acting chops for the role, though.

I don't even want to try to predict the cast. My thought is we should all be concerned with getting a fantastic Snow, too!

Snow! Right, I was so concentrated thinking about the main trio that I didn't even give Snow (or any other one of them for that matter) any thought. You are absolutely right!
I can't even begin to imagine who would fit into Snow's role the best. I don't think there are many chances to get Kevin Spacey?? :)

Alex Pettyfer is also considered? He is too visible lately. He seems a common choice for film adaptations, in fact lot of readers want him for TMI as Jace Wayland. I hope to see new faces for Hunger Games. And hopefully whoever get the role can give justice to the character.

I hope that Alex won't sign to Hunger Games, I would rather see him as Jace in the Mortal Instruments. :P
