Jennifer Lawrence to play Katniss

OK, I have to write about this. Just read (TheWrap) that Jennifer Lawrence has landed the role of Katniss in the movie version of Hunger Games (yes, the actress nominated for an Academy Award for Winter's Bone, which I haven't yet seen - have you?). You might recognize her as Mystique in X-Men: First Class.

Alex Pettyfer is rumored to be under consideration to play Peeta (really?) as are Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right") and Hunter Parrish ("Weeds"). Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit") is directing the movie, and Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "State of Play") wrote the screenplay. Nina Jacobson, Jim Miller and Alli Shearmur are producing.

SO - what do you think?
