The young cast of The Hunger Games

The Young Cast of The Hunger Games

While the odds may not be in favor of these actors in the arena, they certainly were in the casting room. In what was one of the most-watched casting calls for young actors since Twilight, auditions for The Hunger Games were a battle royale in their own right. Anxious to make the cut, hopefuls went all out: they covered their faces with dirt, put twigs in their hair, and wielded various weapons (including a Nerf crossbow and plastic butcher knife). It was all for the chance to play the “tributes” who fight each other to the death in contests broadcast throughout Panem (the futuristic ruins of North America) in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s wildly popular young-adult novels. Ultimately, director Gary Ross took a liking to a fresh-faced cast that includes stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, and a host of new breakout actors.

Major Film Franchise Potential for Young Adult International Bestselling Books

Los Angeles – November 2, 2011: Samuel Hadida announced today that his company, Davis Films, has acquired film rights from authors P.C. and Kristin Cast to their phenomenally successful House of Night young adult fiction book series.
“We are thrilled to bring P.C.’s and Kristin’s stunning series of books to worldwide film audiences,” stated Samuel Hadida. “They have created a world of adolescent growth against a backdrop of supernatural suspense that resonates around the world with young readers immersed in Twilight and Harry Potter. House of Night connects on a profound level -- what growing up means today.”

Davis Films is known for its successful film series, including Silent Hill and most notably the Resident Evil films. “We see with House of Night the same franchise potential,” Hadida added.

Personally, True Romance, a Davis Film, is one of my longtime favorite movies, and the Resident Evil series is one of Kristin's favorites. Oh boy!

On a more HoN specific note - Not only am I impressed with Samuel Hadida as a producer, but he and I have had HoN discussions and I feel certain that Davis Films will make beautiful movies that stay true to the spirit and world of House of Night.

When I spoke with Samuel yesterday he asked me to pass along to my fans that he is very interested in hearing what you guys want from the HoN movies. There will be forums set up soon so you can give him your ideas. We're in the very early stages right now, so give us some time to get this going. We're working on screenplay and director at the moment.

Yes, I will have creative input.

Yes, Samuel is very excited about the possibility of doing as much filming as possible in Tulsa.

Casting: just through preliminary talks with Samuel we've discussed open calls as well as using known talent. Right now my guess is the final cast will be a mixture of both. Please don't send me your resumes, etc. We're not at that point yet. Don't worry - I'll let you know when we're there!

So, my wonderful fans, thank you for waiting along with me semi-patiently for this wonderful news. I'll keep you updated as I know more. And hang on - the ride is gonna get crazy!
