Hunger Games Adaptation Gets A Release Date

Not since the first talks of the Twilight adaptation has there been this much chatter about the casting and production of a film. Now, with Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, fans everywhere are all salivating (no pun intended) to get more details about this big film adaptation.

Not long ago, director Gary Ross (Pleasantville) was announced to take on the big screen adaptation for Lionsgate, with Billy Ray (Shattered Glass) taking on the screenplay. Now that we have the crux of the pre-production lined up, we’re now getting a release date. From THR:

Lionsgate has chosen a release date for high-profile event picture The Hunger Games: March 23, 2012.

By going out in theaters in late March, Lionsgate is looking to prosper from spring break and the Easter holiday (Easter Sunday falls on April 8 in 2012). So far, Hunger Games has the March 23-25 weekend to itself.

Set in post-apocalyptic America, Hunger Games introduces 16-year-old heroine Katniss Everdeen, who must participate in a fight-to-the-death annual event called the Hunger Games. The battles are televised, and pit youths from each of the Capitol’s 12 Districts against each other.

There is a pretty lengthy list of potentials and dream casting picks, but nothing has been set in stone yet. Ross is set to start production on the film later this summer.
