Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth are headed for the fight of their lives.
The two stars have been cast in the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best selling book, “The Hunger Games,” as Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne, respectively. They join Jennifer Lawrence, who was recently cast as main character Katniss Everdeen, in the highly anticipated young adult fantasy film.
About a future, war-ravaged world run by a corrupt government, the books focus on Everdeen, Mellark and Hawthorne, participants in the Hunger Games Tournament. It’s a televised event in which children battle to the death.
