That was fast. Lionsgate's The Hunger Games has wrapped 84 days of principal photography on the first installment of the intended series. Lionsgate's Joe Drake says: "What I observed on set was impressive on every level, and reinforced my confidence that we have assembled precisely the right team to bring Suzanne Collins’ brilliant novel to the big screen." The film won't feed its hungry teen fans until March 23, 2012. But plenty of first-look fodder (with more to come) are serving as catnip for what looks to be the next young adult female Twilight replacement franchise.
