Most fans know that THE HUNGER GAMES is already in production (shooting right here in our backyard in North Carolina) and according to Elizabeth Banks the film will make fans very happy. Banks said, “We’ve got a little under a month left. It’s very exciting. We’re really making a provocative movie that’s also highly entertaining. It’s gonna be fun. It’s really great to make something that you know people are excited about and also that you know is gonna deliver. I really think fans are gonna love it.” In case you missed previous posts, Elizabeth Banks will play Effie Trinket who is Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark’s (Josh Hutcherson) guide through the Capitol leading up to their turn in THE HUNGER GAMES.
You can also see below some new images of Katniss and Peeta who appear to already be in the arena fighting for survival. There’s not a lot to see, but hopefully soon we’ll get some shots of the other tributes, and maybe some more action scenes.
THE HUNGER GAMES will be directed by Gary Ross and along with Lawrence, Hutcherson and Banks will star: Woody Harrelson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland. The film is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
