Speculation regarding who will direct the adaptation for Suzanne Collins' hit series, "The Hunger Games," has already hit a fever pitch, but casting rumors have been kept at a pretty subtle whisper.
Of course, fans have been campaigning in all caps throughout the interwebs for some of their favorite actresses to land the coveted lead role of tough teen Katniss Everdeen. Among them have been Hit-Girl Chloe Moretz, Dakota Fanning, "Skins" star Kaya Scodelario and "Nikita"'s Lyndsy Fonseca.
Well, believe it or not, we scored a little news during this weekend's New York Comic Con…
Fonseca has the "Hunger Games" script in hand and will be reading it this week.
"I actually just got sent the script," she tells NextMovie. "I haven't read it yet. We'll see. I'm actually flying to L.A. on Tuesday because I've been in 'Nikita' world – I don't have any time off. But I have a week off now for the first time in two or three months and I've got a stack of scripts to get through. I know very little about it. I'll talk to you after I read it."
Needless to say, we imagine she'll like what she reads.
What do you think – does Lyndsy have the stuff of a future Katniss, or should it be another star on the rise? Sound off!
