Hunger Games Movie Buzz

So it's been announced!!! The Hunger Games has gotten an official release date. And it's REALLY SOON. According to Entertainment Weekly, and IMDB, the highly anticipated adaptation of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games will be released on March 23, 2012.

That's eerily soon considering it doesn't even have a cast yet, isn't it?

There IS a significant amount of casting buzz floating around the Internet. YALSA's The Hub breaks down some casting possibilities for us.

Potential Peetas:

1. Liam Hemsworth (who, personally, would not be my pick ever, because he is a little too tough and dreamy looking.)

2. Alex Pettyfer (a lot closer to the Peeta I've been imagining, although still a bit old looking.)

3. Lucas Till (dingdingding! It's Peeta come to life!)

Now some potential Katniss':

1. Kaya Scodelario (I'm not sure if it's just because her hair looks messy in that picture or not, but she is almost exactly how I pictured Katniss, pretty but not perfect, effortless and thin, but wiry.)

2. Hailee Steinfeld (She wouldn't be my choice. She seems too perfect, too exotic looking without even trying.)

3. Chloe Moretz (I think The Hub expresses my sentiments exactly: "She’s blond and so young looking in her IMDb picture that it’s hard to picture her as Katniss – maybe as Prim!")

4. Lyndsy Fonseca (She would be perfect if she was just a little bit younger looking. But make up can do amazing things, right?)

Thoughts? I'm not completely in love with any of the casting options, but I'm sure the movie will be awesome no matter what. I'm desperate to hear some potential Gales though!

No matter what, there is only 1 year, 1 month, and 22 days until we find out EVERYTHING about The Hunger Games movie.
