Could this be the next 'Harry Potter'-'Twilight'-'Lord of the Rings' movie franchise?

Lionsgate has set a March 23, 2012 release date (just prior to spring break and Easter) for director Gary Ross' feature adaptation of Suzanne Collins' young adult bestseller 'The Hunger Games,' the first book in a trilogy about youngsters in a post-Apocalyptic America. The book has sold 3.3 million copies in the U.S. with foreign rights sold in 41 countries, according to a report in the Hollywood Reporter.

Guess who publishes 'The Hunger Game' and the two follow-up novels, 'Catching Fire' and 'Mockingjay': None other than Scholastic, home of the Harry Potter series.
