Liam Hemsworth is reading the script for The Hunger Games right now and the actor wants in.
The Australian actor spoke to MTV in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival and revealed he loves the “action, gritty kinda of stuff” that drives the story when asked about the Suzanne Collins series of books.
Hemsworth hasn’t met with director Gary Ross but does feel he will have a sit down with the director in the near future. “I mean it’s pretty early right now, but, yeah, I’m sure I’ll meet on it soon.”
The Last Song actor’s name is being tossed in the ring for the role of Peeta, however unless they’ve cast Katniss and are keeping it a secret, they are no where near casting the role of District 12′s male tribute.
What do you think of the possibility of Hemsworth in The Hunger Games?

Justin Bieber puts his collar up for the February March issue of Girl’s Life magazine.
For the 100th issue, 16 year-old Bieber reveals his romantic side and talks about his first kiss:
“I told all my friends, ‘The first person to kiss a girl gets $10.’ So, my boys, they didn’t kiss anyone and they were like, ‘Justin, you should do it.’ I was slow-dancing with this girl and just went in! Back then, I was just some hockey-playing kid, so I was lucky she even kissed me back.”
Bieber also told the mag he’d like to take a girl on a hot air balloon ride.

Australian actress Mia Wasikowska has the title role in the upcoming film Jane Eyre, the classic Charlotte Brontë novel brought to the big screen. The script is said to focus heavily on the Gothic undertones of the story. Wasikowska is costarring with Michael Fassbender and Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Fairfax.
Based on Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, the romantic drama stars Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”) and Michael Fassbender (“Inglourious Basterds”) in the lead roles. In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, where she works as a governess for wealthy Edward Rochester. The isolated and imposing residence – and Mr. Rochester’s coldness – have sorely tested the young woman’s resilience, forged years earlier when she was orphaned. As Jane reflects upon her past and recovers her natural curiosity, she will return to Mr. Rochester – and the terrible secret that he is hiding…
The movie is due out March 11, 2011. Check out the trailer below. Read more »

Post Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe is Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor in the very popular British ghost story The Woman In Black. The haunting tale of a lonely woman who dies and takes her secrets and pain to her grave, Kipps is charged with sifting through her paperwork in the empty desolate house while a feeling of unease overcomes him. Here is the official movie plot synopsis:
The story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.
Hammer Films has released two new photos from the film of Radcliffe in all his lawyerly sideburned goodness. The story is originally from a 1983 novel by Susan Hill. It was so successful, it was turned into a stage adaptation in 1987 and has been a long-running play in London’s West End ever since.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader release is getting near and Warner Bros. studios have sent out a new trailer for the 3rd in the Narnia series of films. December 10th sees Lucy (Georgie Henley) Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and their cousin Eustace (Will Poulter) join up with King Caspian (Ben Barnes) to find the seven lords sent beyond the Eastern Ocean.
This time around – Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their pesky cousin Eustace Scrubb – find themselves swallowed into a painting and on to a fantastic Narnian ship headed for the very edges of the world. Joining forces once again with their royal friend Prince Caspian and the warrior mouse Reepicheep, they are whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands, and beyond.
On this bewitching voyage that will test their hearts and spirits, the trio will face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. Only an entirely uncharted journey to Aslan’s Country – a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader – can save Narnia, and all the astonishing creatures in it, from an unfathomable fate.
I’m looking forward to this one! Check the trailer below. Read more »
