Lionsgate Sets Release Date for Futuristic Thriller 'The Hunger Games'


Based on a best selling young adult novel by Suzanne Collins, the drama thriller is set for March 23, 2012 release in the U.S.

Lionsgate is going full throttle with its upcoming adaptation of best selling young adult novel, "The Hunger Games". The studio has picked a release date for the movie, announcing that they will debut it in theaters across the nation on March 23, 2012, just in time for Easter holiday.

"The Hunger Games", the first in a trilogy of science fiction novels by Suzanne Collins, is set in post-apocalyptic America and follows 16-year-old Katniss. Living in the poorest district of Panem, she "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," The Hollywood Reporter sums up the story.

No cast has been announced for the film which has had Gary Ross on board to direct. Principal photography is set to begin in late spring or summer.
