This thing is picking up terror hotties like a snowball going downhill at a…well…at a terror hottie party. We’ve got Amanda Stenberg and, of all people, Elizabeth Banks.
Amanda Stenberg will be joining up as Rue, one of the contestants in the Hunger Games, and Elizabeth Banks signs on as Effie Trinket, an “escort” of the contestants. Effie actually shows up in all the Hunger Games titles, so this is a pretty big hit for Elizabeth Banks.
The more I find out about this series, the more interested I am. Granted, this may end poorly, as it definitely seems geared to the Twilight set, but it’s hard to turn down a post-apocalyptic anything, really. This could be good, but we’ll have the better part of a year to wait to see how it turns out.
The Hunger Games hits theaters March 23rd, 2012.
