With “Twilight” wrapping up its run, beginning this Friday, with “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I” and the “Harry Potter” franchise now completed, the next young adult phenomenon to move from the literary world to the big screen is “The Hunger Games Trilogy” by Suzanne Collins.
On March 23, 2012, Lionsgate will release the first film featuring an impressive cast including young actors, Jennifer Lawrence (Oscar-nominated for “Winter’s Bone”, “X-Men: First Class”), Josh Hutcherson (“The Kids Are All Right”, “Little Manhattan”), and Liam Hemsworth (“The Last Song”), alongside additional cast members Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, and more. Recent reports also indicate that Oscar-winning songwriter Glen Hansard (“Once”) will contribute music to the film, while insiders are stating that Lionsgate must see the film earn at least $100 million to have the second book in the series, “Catching Fire”, adapted as a feature film.
I don’t think that’ll be much of a problem.
