We’ve got a date: March 23, 2012.
We’ve got a director: Gary Ross.
And now we’ve got ourselves a Katniss.
Meet Jennifer Lawrence, an Oscar nominee that’s still fairly new to the Hollywood scene. I was hesitant about her at first, because the first picture of her showed a beach-blonde tanned celeb (and we all know I hate those….), but check out this video.
Her sincerity, ability to laugh at herself, and complete composure in the face of such an intimidating interview…. Guys, I think she’s going to actually be able to pull this off. Especially once they get her the right hair and she’s actually wearing substantial clothing 😉
Now we can only hope that Alex Pettyfer (read: superhotalexriderbeastlyiamnumberfour) gets the role of Peeta…. And if not, I’m still seriously psyched for this movie. It may help that I’ve been rereading the series for the past week, but I honestly believe that they’re going to pull it off.
For more information on the new casting update, read this and this. And I’m sure if you google “katniss everdeen hunger games movie” or something, you’ll get a bunch of gossip sites with the same information.
Who else is ready for Jennifer Lawrence to kick some serious Capitol butt?!
