Hunger Games: The Movie

Right on the tail of Gayle Forman's If I Stay movie deal is this news from FilmJunk -

"...we have news of a big screen adaptation of the book in development over at Lionsgate. Nina Jacobson (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) will produce, with Collins adapting her own book for the screenplay. Apparently the book has received rave reviews from Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), which explains the sudden interest." Source
Empire Online expands:
"...Collins will adapt her own book for the screen and the follow up to the novel, Catching Fire, is due out in September 2009. The Hunger Games is slated for a 2011 release."
I have yet to read the novel but tell me what you think and who's your ideal cast. Who'd be a great (appropriately aged) Katniss?

Thanks to Justin for sending me this link.

Hmm..I don't know who I would cast in this movie. This will be a hard one to get a perfect cast I think. I'm excited to see how it translates to the big screen though.

hmm..I was interested in seeing who people suggested, but I guess no one knows!
