It’s hard to imagine a postapocalyptic thriller for the preteen set, but that’s just what we’re going to get with Hunger Games. And they’ve just picked up a new terror hottie–Leven Rambin.
Leven will be playing Glimmer, one of the contestants in the Hunger Games, an annual event that revolves around teenagers duelling to the death as the result of a war between districts that had been lost years prior. Think Death Race, but without cars, and instead of hardened convicts, we get the castoffs from Lord of the Flies, times about a billion.
We’d discovered previously that Jennifer Lawrence was involved with this, and now it’s got just a little extra terror hottie punch. I have no idea how this is going to turn out, and frankly, I fear for the worst. But still, we’ll see how this all comes out when it hits theaters March 23, 2012.
