Who Will Star in ‘The Hunger Games’?

September 7, 2010

chloe-moretzHollywood’s crazy about The Hunger Games right now, and as we reported earlier, they’ve almost picked a director.  But who will star as the young hero, Katniss?

According to USA Today, the frontrunner for the role is Chloe Moretz, who seems to be getting pretty huge: she appeared in 500 Days of Summer, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Kick-Ass, and will star in the upcoming Let Me In and Hugo Cabret.

She’s only thirteen, while in the book, Katniss is sixteen — but if you’ve seen her in anything, you know she acts awfully mature for her age.

USA Today notes that Kristen Stewart is also being mentioned for the role, but she has the opposite problem — she’s twenty.

Who do you think should get the role?  Dakota Fanning is sixteen…

    OMG Kristen Stewart can’t play Katniss she already ruined the twilight movies not the Hunger games to! Dakota Fanning gets my vote she is exactly the figure I imagined to be Katniss Everdeen

      i strongly agree. Kristen stewart was a horrible actress and really did ruin my obsession in twilight. when i saw that movie i felt sorry for the book. Plus she always had her mouth open and blinked way too much. Yes, anyone but her (thats a good actress)
