And apparently I missed something during finals...Lenny Kravitz is going to play Cinna? I love it. Just throwing it out there. Why not? I was kind of picturing someone different, but hey. I'm open to it.
Since this is our first post on the movies, here is Lionsgate's synopsis:
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love.
THE HUNGER GAMES will be directed by Gary Ross, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik.
Lionsgate will release “The Hunger Games” on March 23, 2012."I Am Number Four" had nothing on this movie. Nice try.
