File: Hunger Games
The Hunger Games is an upcoming sci-fi action drama film directed by Gary Ross and based on the novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins.
It stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. It is scheduled to be released on March 23, 2012.
Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used to be North America. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of a reminder of the defeat, each district is forced to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event each year, called "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Katniss' sister is chosen by lottery, Katniss steps up to go in her place, and so is forced to take part in The Hunger Games.
Lionsgate confirmed in March 2011 that about 30 actresses either met or read for the role of Katniss, including Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Saoirse Ronan, Chloë Moretz, Lyndsy Fonseca, Emily Browning, Shailene Woodley, and Kaya Scodelario According to The Hollywood Reporter, contenders for the role of Peeta other than Hutcherson included Alexander Ludwig (who was later cast as Cato), Hunter Parrish, Lucas Till, and Evan Peters. In April 2011, John C. Reilly was in talks with Lionsgate to portray Haymitch Abernathy, former victor of a Hunger Games held years before and mentor to Katniss and Peeta. The following month it was announced that the role went to Woody Harrelson.
Lionsgate Entertainment acquired worldwide distribution rights in March 2009 with Nina Jacobson's production company Color Force. Collins adapted the novel for film herself, and her script was revised by screenwriter Billy Ray. Collins anticipates the film to have a PG-13 rating. Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate President of Motion Picture Production, and Jim Miller, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Motion Picture Production, are in charge of overseeing the production of the movie. Shearmur said:
Gary Ross became the director in November 2010. With an initial budget of $75 million, principal photography began in Burke County, North Carolina in Western North Carolina in May 2011 and concluded on September 15, 2011 with a final budget of just under $100 million.
At a concert in Berlin in October 2011, Academy Award-winner Glen Hansard announced that he would be featured on the movie's soundtrack album and played a song written from Katniss's perspective.
On August 8, 2011, while still shooting the film, Lionsgate announced that a film adaptation of the second novel in The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2013.
