Less than 24 hours ago Eric hit you all with the news that Elizabeth Banks had officially signed on for Gary Ross' THE HUNGER GAMES and now here I am to tell you all about even more casting!
Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog we've just been updated to the fact that two more 'tributes' have joined THE HUNGER GAMES in the forms of Ethan Jamieson and Tara Macken! Apparently the duo have been cast as 'District 4' tributes, which are part of the "Careers." Whatever that all means.
THE HUNGER GAMES is set in the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death televised for all of Panem to see.
Jamieson and Macken join the previously announced Banks, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Paula Malcolmson, Willow Shields, Amandla Stenberg, Dayo Okeniyi, Leven Rambin, Jack Quaid, Ian Nelson and Kalia Prescott on the highly anticipated adaptation. THE HUNGER GAMES is set to hit theaters on March 23, 2012 so things should start rolling on this little diddy soon!
