Just a quick post about the upcoming Hunger Games movie (March 23, 2012). A friend posted this link on Facebook so I thought I'd share it with you here. The title role of Katniss Everdeen has been filled by 20 year old Jennifer Lawrence. Here is the full article. And here is another one. Also, I was glad to discover that the author, Suzanne Collins, helped write the screenplay. I think it's cool when that happens because then you can feel a little more confident that the movie has the author's blessing (at least we hope so).
Edit: this is what Suzanne Collins had to say about the choice of actress.
