The Hunger Games casting is in full swing with director Gary Ross and author Suzanne Collins working on getting the right actor in the right role.
Jennifer Lawrence has been chosen as Katniss Everdeen but the next two big leads are still up in the air. Peeta Mellark is thought to be the role that is next on the casting list (with the role of Gale not far behind)
A few actors have confirmed they have tested for the part including Alex Pettyfer, Josh Hutcherson, Lucas Till, and Hunter Parrish are the more well known actors. Also said to be shortlisted for the role are Evan Peters from Kick Ass and Alexander Ludwig of Escape to Witch Mountain.
Now Pettyfer appears to have dropped off the list of final contenders so perhaps he is no longer in the running.
These are all really good choices but I have always like Hutcherson for the part.
Who do you think should be cast opposite Lawrence?

Imagine Little Red Riding Hood: a young woman walking through the hushed snowy woods wearing a bright red cape, she hears every sound and imagines the worst; looking over her shoulder terrified by what is out there, following her. A story more for grown-ups than for children, the photo above sets the mood for the new telling of a very old tale.
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is taking on the classic Brothers Grimm folktale and giving it a gothic/horror twist with werewolves, demons and Amanda Seyfried as Valerie, the title character, torn between two suitors. Hardwicke gives Seyfried lots of praise:
”I’ve never seen her like this in a role before,” raves director Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight). ”She’s supersexy, wild. And those big eyes of hers are totally out of a fairy tale.”
I love this image – can’t wait for more. I am very excited to see what kind of energy and pulse this cast create: Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Lukas Haas and the almost Edward Cullen: Shiloh Fernandez.
The movie, now titled Red Riding Hood (it was originally The Girl with the Red Riding Hood) is set for March 2011 release.

Pairing up for the big screen, Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson are starring in Aaron and Sarah – a romantic indie comedy directed by Neil Patrick Harris. The movie centers around popular teen Sarah (Roberts) and her BFF (BFF was the original title) a nerdy kinda of guy Aaron (Hutcherson) and how they navigate through four years of high school drama and still remain friends.
This will be the How I Met Your Mother star’s first feature film as director but not the only time he has helmed a production. Harris took the reigns of the Hollywood Bowl production of the musical RENT this summer with Vanessa Hudgens.

Emma Roberts has the serious Hollywood acting pedigree (dad is Eric Roberts and of course, her Aunt Julia,) and she definitely looked the part at the 8th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. The daringly draped neckline and asymmetrical length of sleeves and the perfect shade of deep lilac was a winning combination for Emma.
Roberts has so much work coming out in the next few months it’s amazing: Twelve with Chace Crawford was out in August, It’s Kind Of A Funny Story opens October 8th and Scream 4 will be released April 2011. The Winning Season is out on DVD November 23rd.
Lots more of Roberts elegant look below.

Australian magazine Girlfriend nabbed Leighton Meester for the cover of the August 2010 edition. For the issue, Meester gave the mag some of her personal philosophies on how to be your happiest:
Be Natural: “I never wear make-up when I’m not at work. It can make you forget what you look like, and I’ve grown to really love the way I look without it.”
Have Priorities: “I’ve never been crazy. I’m a very good girl, to be honest. I don’t do anything to hurt anyone. Honestly, all I ever do is work. ”
Resist the Pressure: “I am this way and that’s it. I’ve never been under pressure to lose weight – if I want to eat chocolate, I will.”
She’s certainly right about her work ethic. The actress, who just wrapped filming the movie Monte Carlo with Selena Gomez and Cory Monteith, is currently working in New York on the new season of her hit TV show Gossip Girl. She has a ton of big screen projects for release next year, including The Roommate with Cam Gigandet (my personal fave ex-vampire) and The Oranges with Hugh Laurie.
See the scans for more Leighton goodness here.

Miley Cyrus appears poised to take on the movie world full throttle. The Last Song star has made no secret her ambition to conquer the big screen and she may have a number of projects in the pipeline.
We know she is starring along side Demi Moore for LOL and it has long been rumored that she is headlining the movie version of the great Aprilynne Pike book Wings as the fairy girl living a human life. Her IMDb page is listing some new (possible) productions as well.
Girls Just Want To Have Fun – a remake of the 80s movie – that originally starred Sarah Jessica Parker, Shannen Doherty and Helen Hunt is the first possible new role. Nothing is confirmed but who would you like to see Miley with if this does happen? (Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries and Aimee Teegarden of Friday Night Lights are my picks.)
Family Bond is another flick Cyrus’ name is attached to (according to IMDb.) Disney Dreaming has this synopsis of the movie:
Word is that the movie will debut in 2011 and is about a teen girl, played by Miley, who discovers that her father is a CIA agent and she is forced to develop a relationship with him while she is searching for her mother who was recently kidnapped.
So after watching her in Hannah Montana and then The Last Song, are you ready for more MC in the movies? Or are you happy with musical Miley?

Valentine’s Day had the teen dream team pairing of Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift (Taylor Squared!) and now the movie’s sequel, New Year’s Eve, might just catch Bieber fever. That’s right girls, Justin Bieber’s name is being bandied about to make his movie debut in the upcoming rom-com with loads of stars. Director Garry Marshall is pretty clueless as to who this Bieber kid is:
“Already, they’re mentioning Justin Bieber,” he said about who will be cast. “I have no idea who that is, but I’m sure we’ll meet.”
Shooting will start in September, so someone should download a couple of songs for Marshall or you know, get the man an internet connection.
