The director for THG trilogy, Gary Ross, has been announced and casting is the next phase. Here is what Ross had to say about casting Katniss Everdeen
Ross revealed that he hadn’t yet met with any actresses but would begin those conversations shortly. Admirers of Katniss, District 12′s dark and resilient “Tribute,” can rest assured that the director won’t dumb the character down or cutesy her up for the movie. “I’ve talked to Suzanne extensively and I feel like I understand the character really, really well,” he said. “What makes Katniss attractive is her strength and her assuredness and her defiance and ultimately her compassion. And I don’t mean just physical strength. I mean a real strength as a human being. She knows her own truth. She feels deeply and fiercely. And this is something that the actress has to bring with her.”
There have also been rumors that Hugh Laurie & Robert Downey Jr. are up for the role of Haymich Abernathy, what do you think?
