There’s been a lot of controversy over the casting of The Hunger Games movies lately. Interestingly, Oscar nominee (and soon-to-be Katniss Everdeen) Jennifer Lawrence says she understands people’s reactions. She says that she’s a huge fan of the books and is just honored that she was chosen.
There’s always bound to be some degree of controversy when a beloved book series is turned into a movie, but what to you think? Suzanne Collins was involved in casting, so are the fans just overacting, or should fan opinion be taken into account when a book as universal as Hunger Games is cast? Let us know what you think about Lawrence and her recently announced cast mates Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth in the comments.
