From The Hollywood Reporter

March 17, 2011

The "Winter's Bone" actress takes on role of young heroine Katniss Everdeen in film adaptation.

Jennifer Lawrence, the Oscar-nominated star of Winter's Bone, has been officially cast as plucky protagonist Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games, the upcoming film adaptation of the Suzanne Collins young adult novel. Gary Ross is directing the Lionsgate project, which is being produced by Nina Jacobson and her Color Force banner.

Collins said of Lawrence's casting, "Jennifer's just an incredible actress. So powerful, vulnerable, beautiful, unforgiving and brave. I never though we'd find somebody this perfect for the role." Added Ross, "Katniss requires a young actress with strength, depth, complexity, tenderness and power. There are very few people alive who can bring that to a role. Jen brings it in spades."
