The Hunger Games picks the District 3 tributes
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Casting for THE HUNGER GAMES continues as director Gary Ross picks two Hollywood newbies to take on the roles of the unnamed District 3 tributes. Ian Nelson and Kalia Prescott have been chosen to
compete star in THE HUNGER GAMES alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. Apparently these two characters don’t have a huge role but it is important in some way (you’ll have to look it up because I’m not going to spoil it for you!). In the series from Suzanne Collins, each District has an industry specialty and District 3’s is technology so that will play into the film in some way (District 12 is coal for those wondering). THE HUNGER GAMES is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
Now that I’ve started reading these books (thanks FB fan Rena for the encouragement), I can see why so many people are so excited about this film. They are a pretty fun read and hopefully they will translate well into movie form. You can officially consider me a joiner of THG craze.
