by at . Comments

The Twilight Saga just started filming its final two movies. Harry Potter and company will say goodbye this fall.

Don't worry, though, there's a new movie franchise on the way to take the place of these iconic adventures: The Hunger Games, the first book in a trilogy about young men and women who fight to the death in front of a worldwide audience, will hit the big screen next year.

Casting is underway for this sci-fi, futuristic thriller, with fans chiming in on their ideal choice for the story's heroine, Katniss Everdeen. The leading contender, according to E! News and other sources? Jennifer Lawrence.

The studio is reportedly "very interested" in the recent Oscar nominee. Other actresses under consideration include Dakota Fanning and Chloe Moretz.

What do you think, Hunger Games fans? Would Lawrence make a believable Katniss, provided she dyed her blonde hair dark, of course?
