Unless you've been living in a hazy state of delusional reality lately (tracker jacker bites can be a b*tch!), then you're well aware that one of the greatest series ever (of course I'm talking about THE HUNGER GAMES) is being made into a movie. Thankfully we don't have to wait too long for release - March 23 2012 - which will nicely ease the devestation of the Harry Potter movie's coming to an end.
Scripts have been sent out and auditions are/will be in progress very soon. There are a number of potential "Katniss'" who have been rumoured to be auditioning. Some have confirmed scripts, others are in talks or else just rumoured around the internet:
As for me, I'm particularly fond of Lyndsy Fornseca for Katniss. She has the script and will be auditioning. I've seen her in a few episodes of Nikita and I think she'd be great. I just finished re-reading Mockingjay and seeing these pictures totally made me think of Katniss in District 13 (with their grey attire).
Here's a great fanmade video journeying Katniss and Peeta's struggles throughout the series. If you've read all the books, the scenes they represent will more than likely make sense to you, as the second part of the video has a lot from Mockingjay. They've used Alex Pettyfer for Peeta (I know, I know, that boy is everywhere!) and Lyndsy Fonseca for Katniss (she totally fits the part!)
I really don't know who I want for Peeta. I can't find the perfect actor... maybe an unknown? Sure, Alex looks pretty good as Peeta in the vid above, but it's very unlikely he will be cast since he already has a bunch of YA movies under his belt and possible upcoming roles (Mortal Instruments or The Last Apprentice).
There are no confirmed scripts in potential-Peeta hands as far as I am aware of, but some guys have expressed their interest in taking on the role, including:
How about you guys? Any favourites for Katniss? Peeta? Haymitch? Effie? Prim? The rest of the cast? Are you as freaking excited as I am for the movie?!
