Elizabeth Banks will escort Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Now that the main three characters in the Gary Ross directed film THE HUNGER GAMES has been cast it’s time to move onto the smaller roles and the first to be cast will most likely be Elizabeth Banks (THE NEXT THREE DAYS and OUR IDIOT BROTHER). If Banks joins the film she would play Effie Trinket, who is the escort for District 12 and who is known for having varying hair colors throughout the series. As you probably already know, THE HUNGER GAMES is a competition to the death where one selected from each District must fight (in a series of games I guess), the District 12 volunteer Katniss Everdeen will be played by Jennifer Lawrence. Everdeen has two men in her life one being Peeta Mellark who will be portrayed by Josh Hutcherson and the other Gale Hawthorne to be played by Liam Hemsworth.
THE HUNGER GAMES has a tentative release date of March 23, 2012.
