Lawrence to star in Hunger Games

Jennifer Lawrence is in the frame for Hunger Games

Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly set to star in new action trilogy Hunger Games.

The Winters Bone star and Oscar-nominee was being considered for the role of tomboy heroine Katniss along with True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin, but Variety reports Jennifer is about to be offered the part.

Hunger Games, based on the young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins, is set in a dystopian future where a young woman joins a survival contest to save her community and is already being pitched as the new Twilight.

Insiders say director Garry Ross and studio Lionsgate are now leaning towards 20-year-old Jennifer, as casting an older actress will set the tone for the film and Hailee and Abigail are both just 14.
