Hunger Games Movie – Auditions and Writing

The word is that auditions have started for The Hunger Games movie. The Hunger Games Trilogy fansite posted on their facebook page this morning that they’ve had confirmation that casting is underway. But they also say that it seems that if you do want to audition you’ll need an agent. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you more information as soon as possible.

In the meantime Entertainment Weekly has spoken to Suzanne Collins about The Hunger Games movie. Ms Collins defends the kid-on-kid violence in the three books, pointing to the powerful anti-war message in the story. She also told EW that she recognises that not everyone sees the books as war novels.

“People view the books differently — as romance, as dystopian, as action adventure, as political,” she tells EW. “So there seems to be more than one way into the story.”

Ms Collins wrote the first draft of the screenplay herself and explained that while Lionsgate acquired the books they established a dialogue with her, to get her input and feedback. “Obviously, you have to let things go,” she says of the process, “but it’s more than a question of condensation. You want to preserve the essence while making the film stand on its own. It’s an art in itself.”
