Hunger Games movie updates!

I am so very excited about the casting for the Hunger Games. It looks awesome!

Katniss - Oscar-nominated Jennifer Lawrence
Effie - Elizabeth Banks
Haymitch - Woody Harrelson
Caesar - Stanley Tucci
President Snow - Donald Sutherland
Cinna - Lenny Kravitz

I can't wait to see Woody Harrelson as Haymitch!!!!! And Donald Sutherland is going to make one creepy president.

I also just saw that Danny Elfman has beens igned on to do the music, along with T-Bone Burnett. Danny Elfman has done the music for Beetlejuice, Big Fish, Good Will Hunting, Men in Black, Milk, and The Nightmare Before Christmas, among others. T-Bone Burnetthas won a bunch of Grammies and his film work includes composing for films such as Crazy Heart and Walk the Line, and producing soundtracks for O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Across the Universe. He has an Academy Award for the song "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart.

Among other movies, the following have done:
Judianna Makovsky - costume design - X-Men: The Last Stand, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Seabiscuit, and Pleasantville.
Larry Dias - set decoration - Inception, The Village, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Transformers.
Tom Stern - cinematography for Gran Torino, Letters from Iwo Jima, and Mystic River.
Ve Neill - makeup department head - Pirates of the Caribbean, Amistad, and Edward Scissorhands.

So it seems the movie is in pretty capable hands all the way around.

Supposed to come out in March, 2012!!!!!
