Stunt-woman-turned-actress Tara Macken is the latest to join Lionsgate’s big screen adaptation of author Suzanne Collins’ young-adult series “Hunger Games.” The exotic 27-year-old newcomer will portray a District 4 tribute.
Hunger Games finds child survivors of an economically and socially collapsed America competing in televised games of death in a new country named Panem. Two kids from each of Panem’s 12 districts are chosen by lottery each year to participate.
The much buzzed-about film is directed by Gary Ross and stars Jennifer Lawrence (X-Men: First Class), Josh Hutcherson (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Liam Hemsworth (Knowing), Leven Rambin (”Grey’s Anatomy”) and Elizabeth Banks (The Uninvited).
The Hunger Games will be in theaters on March 23, 2012.
