Over on 24 Frames, Nicole Sperling has big news for “Hunger Games” fans…
“The Hunger Games” has nabbed its boys. Lionsgate announced today that “The Kids Are All Right” star Josh Hutcherson will play opposite Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss as fellow competitor Peeta Mellark while teen heartthrob Liam Hemsworth (“The Last Song”) will take the role of childhood friend/love interest Gale Hawthorne.
The announcement completes the much-anticipated trio that will play the three leads in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling series “The Hunger Games.”
Since the film, to be directed by Gary Ross (“Seabiscuit”), has received a slew of comparisons to the “Twilight” franchise, the big question is whether or not these relative unknowns are on the same path to mega-stardom that engulfed Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner when “Twilight” debuted.
THERE’S MORE, READ THE REST
