Is it time once again for a good old fashioned survival of the fittest story? Seems like it is, as the previously announced adaption of 'The Hunger Games', a novel by Suzanne Collins, has now officially snagged it's director Gary Ross ('Pleasantville', 'Seabiscuit'). The science fiction thriller apparently had a couple of Brit director's also in the running, David Slade ('Hard Candy', '30 Days of Night', 'Eclipse') and Sam Mendes ('American Beauty', 'Revolutionary Road'). But Ross has surprisingly superceded both.

"HUNGER GAMES - the first in a novel trilogy by Collins - takes place in an unidentified future time period after the destruction of North America, in a nation known as Panem. Panem consists of a wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts. As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol, every year one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected at random and forced to participate in the Hunger Games, a televised event where the participants, or "tributes", must fight to the death in a dangerous outdoor arena until only one remains.

The story follows fatherless 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose. Also participating from District 12 is Peeta Mellark, a boy whom Katniss knows from school and who once saved Katniss's life by giving her bread when her family was starving."
