It's not casting time just yet, but according to Entertainment Weekly, 'The Hunger Games' script is out and an interesting duo got their hands on it, Kaya Scodelario and Lyndsy Fonseca. Unless you've seen the show 'Skins,' Fonseca is the more familiar face of the two. She's appeared in both 'Kick-Ass' and 'Hot Tub Time Machine' and now co-stars in CW's 'Nikita.' Fonseca told NextMovie she received the script while promoting the show at New York City Comic Con. She certainly has what it takes concerning experience and looks, but her age might become an issue.

In 'The Hunger Games,' the country of Panem is divided up into the Capitol and the 12 surrounding districts. Every year, each district must send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to the Capitol to compete in a televised fight to the death called The Hunger Games. Clearly, the 23-year-old Fonseca doesn't coincide with the Capitol's rules, but will a film audience be more lenient? It wouldn't come as a surprise if Lionsgate opted to go with a slightly older cast and try to have them pass for younger characters. This would certainly widen the pool of options and give the studio the chance to throw in some more familiar faces with more experience.
