More information about the book

We've been following the news surrounding the film adaptation of the young adult thriller The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins with great interest. It hasn't been cast, nor has any production begun, but the producers have set a release date: March 23rd, 2012.

Collins is reportedly writing the screenplay, to be directed by Gary Ross.

The first in the futuristic Hunger Games trilogy, the storyline features Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called "The Hunger Games."
