Earlier this week, director Gary Ross' adaptation of "The Hunger Games" received a release date of March 23, 2012. With the roll-out of the film being a little over a year away, we expect to hear casting decisions any day now, and as "Harry Potter" and "Twilight" near their final installments, the 'Hunger Games' trilogy is being eyed as the next Young Adult phenomenon, and it's hoped it could launch a group of stars in the same way that those earlier franchises did. There are a number of key roles in the franchise, but the one that's attracted the most attention so far is the female lead, Katniss Everdeen. Now that the film has had its date set on the calendar, we thought we'd have a look at some possible contenders for the role, as well as some other key figures that Ross will be casting.

And soon.
