Lace up your whatever you need to lace up to play a game of survival. Lionsgate has informed EW that The Hunger Games, the adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘s futuristic thriller about a young girl surviving a reality show more brutal than “The Bachelor,” will be released March 23, 2012. Gary Ross is directing/reffing the child murder movie. Now you know how long you have to finish the book beforehand. I better boot up my Kindle like whoa.
