Lionsgate have announced that filming has finally wrapped on Gary Ross' feature adaption 'The Hunger Games'. The North Carolina shoot has moved out of the woods and into post-production and so with the prospect of forthcoming clips and teasers and trailer galore it's an exciting time. 'The Hunger Games' is based on the novel by Suzanne Collins will be followed up by an adaption of the second novel in the series 'Catching Fire' which will be set for general release in 2013. Jennifer Lawrence ('X-Men: First Class') stars as the female lead Katniss and she is joined by an impressive little cast that includes Josh Hutcherson ('The Vampire's Assistant'), Liam Hemsworth ('Triangle'), Elizabeth Banks ('Slither'), Willow Shields, Stanley Tucci ('The Lovely Bones'), Woody Harrelson ('Zombieland'), Toby Jones ('The Mist', 'St Trinian's) and Wes Bentley ('P2').
"Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains.
Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love."
'The Hunger Games' commences in theatres from 23 March 2012.
