Looking for Katniss

Speculation is rife
on who will win the coveted lead role of Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming movie of Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games (Scholastic, 2008).

The L.A. Times quotes producer Nina Jacobson this week, who says auditioning will begin in the new year. There’s lots of interest, but,

“There are no front-runners yet…It really comes down to finding that person who can capture the physicality, the vulnerability and the toughness. She’s a paradoxical character and you need somebody who has the range to capture all of those dimensions.”

Directed by Gary Ross (Seabiscuit), the movie is set to begin shooting in the spring.
