As for Games, consider him a fan. "I read the first book, and she's such a great writer, Suzanne Collins," Bentley said. "I'm very excited to be a part of it. I loved the first book. It was so great. It's such an original idea. It echoes a lot of 1984. It echoes Ayn Rand. It's got all the elements of great literature. It's a modern tale of the government putting fear in people."

75 miljoner dollar budget?

Det var tidigare sagt att The Hunger Games budget var runt $60 milljoner dollar (cirka 361 miljoner kr) nu har det kommit en artikel från Wall Street Journal om att den är runt $75 miljoner dollar (cirka 452 miljoner kr).

The highest-profile of the new candidates is Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.’s adaptation of Ms. Collins’s popular “Hunger Games” trilogy, which has more than 8.8 million copies in print. The series’ first film, about a teenage girl forced to compete for her life on a reality television show, has a production budget of roughly $75 million and is slated for release next March.

Regissören Gary Ross kommenterade budgeten i EW tidigare detta år och det här är vad vad han sa:

Ross: I’m not allowed to confirm the budget number, but I will say it’s enough money to make the movie well and not disappoint a single fan. It’s a lot less money than a lot of other franchises or tentpoles of the same stature. But I don’t mind budget constraints.

Personligen hoppas jag på att budgeten är så hög som möjligt så filmen kan bli så bra som möjligt! Eller hur? Kommentera vad du tycker!

John C. Reilly som Haymitch?

Enligt NY Magazine's Vulture blog har John C. Reilly erbjudits rollen som Haymitch Abernathy. Detta är inte officiellt utan bara ett rykte.

Loaded question: Who plays a paunchy, pathetic drunk better than John C. Reilly? Actually, that’s a bit of a trick, because the answer, of course, is no one. And for that reason, we’re told it will be the Oscar-nominated Reilly who’ll be soon be getting the offer to play Haymitch Abernathy in the forthcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games at Lionsgate Films.

image001 Hunger Games Casting News: Direct From Lionsgate Paula Malcomson Has Been Cast As Katniss and Primrose Everdeens Mother!

Fotot tillhör Kevin Abosch

LOS ANGELES, CA, April 22, 2011- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES are pleased to announce that actress Paula Malcomson has been cast in the role of Katniss and Primrose Everdeen’s mother in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel.

Paula Malcomson joins talented young actresses in the roles of her daughters - Jennifer Lawrenceas series heroine Katniss Everdeen, and Willow Shields as little sister Primrose. Josh Hutchersonhas been cast as Peeta Mellark, with Liam Hemsworth in the role of Gale Hawthorne.  Amandla Stenberg in the role of Rue, DayoOkeniyi as her District 11 partner Thresh, and Leven Rambin and Jack Quaid as District 1’s Glimmer and Marvel round out the cast of the fellow tributes drafted to join Katniss and Peeta in the arena.

Said producer Nina Jacobson of the choice, ““Katniss and Prim’s mother has come back from the depths of despair.  Her husband has been killed, resources are scarce and she must live in fear that either one of her daughters could be forced to participate in the Hunger Games.  Needless to say, we needed an actress with some gravitas – someone who could really transport herself, and audiences, to a place as tough as District 12.  Paula has appeared in some really top notch TV shows that are both extremely gritty and extremely imaginative, and she was the perfect choice for this role.”

Malcomson is represented by UTA, and manager Seven Summits.  Her most recent credits include the HBO series DEADWOOD, and the SyFy series CAPRICA.  Last year she had a season long arc on the F/X series SONS OF ANARCHY.

Willow Shields will make an amazing Prim and we’re very lucky to have her.”
