Katniss Cast for Hunger Games Movie!

Big news in the teen/YA book world yesterday: 

Lionsgate announced that they have cast Jennifer Lawrence for the role of Katniss in the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hunger Games.

I'm not familiar with Lawrence, but apparently, she was recently nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Winter's Bone, so she's a good actress.  There's already some buzz about the fact that her appearance doesn't match Katniss' description in the book, but Hollywood can usually find a way around that.

If you're interested in more information about the upcoming movie and the casting, Book Page posted a great article on their blog yesterday.

Can't wait for March 2012!
