Another cast member has been added to the Gary Ross directed adaptation of THE HUNGER GAMES this time in the form of Willow Shields. The relative newcomer has landed the role of Primrose Everdeen, who is the little sis to Katniss played by Jennifer Lawrence. According to Gary Ross,”Prim is an emotionally demanding role and in many ways she is the cornerstone of the story. Willow Shields will make an amazing Prim and we’re very lucky to have her.” That’s three castings in the last two days so things are moving ahead quickly, which is good since filming will most likely begin early summer. THE HUNGER GAMES will be released in theaters on March 23, 2012.
If I had already read ‘The Hunger Games’ series I would be pretty excited for all this casting, but since I’m obviously behind on the times I need to shut myself off for the weekend and catch up.
