Buzz is definitely surrounding the film adaption of “The Hunger Games,” the young adult novel by Suzanne Collins.

While Kaya Scodelario and Hailee Steinfeld have been eying the lead role as Katniss, Elle Fanning‘s name as been floating around Katniss’ younger sister, Primrose.

Hailee Steinfield and Elle Fanning have great chemistry together so it wouldn’t be unbelievable if they are sisters. Kaya still has to work on her acting/American accent. Elle Fanning playing support to Kaya’s character isn’t really believable but Hailee is an award winning actress so it makes much more sense. Hailee would also be closer to Katniss’ age and she could grow with the character over three books. Kaya is already older than Katniss.

Elle is super tall. Isn’t Prim supposed to be really small and fragile looking? She does have the looks for Prim though.

I love Kaya for Katniss!!!!
Hailee is also good, I think. But Kaya is perfect.

READ THE HUNGER GAMES if you haven’t already. Amazing, amazing series. I cannot wait until the movie is out!

Dannie @ 2:01 am on 01/18/2011

Hailee would be perfect!
When they start filming she’ll be the perfect age.

luciana @ 5:29 am on 01/18/2011

¡estoy feliz por considerar a elle para un papel en la pelicula(el papel de prim)seria magnifico,es perfecta para el papel!ojala sea cierto eso pronto!!

dreamer @ 6:53 am on 01/18/2011

i’ve never really thought about it, but i would love elle as prim! she just has this innocence about her, this “little sister” vibe that would be perfect for the role. i don’t care about her height or age at all!

Mandy @ 9:30 am on 01/18/2011

Elle is like 5’7″ so no, she’ can’t play Prim lol

<3 Hailee for Katniss. I know she’s only 14, but she looks older than her age.

Hey Just Jared! Don’t leave Jodelle Ferland and Malese Jow out for Katniss! Hailee is only 14 so in my opinion, she shouldn’t be making out with any guys on screen at that age. Kaya I just don’t like for some reason. Malese can kick ass! (Vampire Diaries) and Jodelle REALLY wants the role (she was Katniss for halloween) and she can really act (Silent Hill and Case 39) so in my opinion they would be better. Elle Fanning is really the only one who I picture as Prim. When I was reading for the first time I already was picturing Malese as Katniss (she got me into The Hunger Games via her tweeting she wants to be Katniss) but when Katniss described Prim I was like “ELLE FANNING!” She has to be her in the movie. I know Prim’s supposed to be small and whatnot but Elle is the only one I can picture. Her or possible Chloe Moretz.

if elle still looked the way she did 3 or 4 years ago she would be perfect for prim. now she looks really mature and beautiful and it just wouldnt be right

pup @ 4:40 pm on 01/18/2011

Kaya HAS to be Katniss!!

Raquel @ 6:29 pm on 01/18/2011

Kaya is so much better than this Hailee. And Elle as Prim would be awesome! The Hunger Games is one of my favorite books ever and it would be great with Kaya and Elle.

stephanie @ 8:14 pm on 01/18/2011

Elle is 5′ 6″, but that isn’t really “super tall”. I knew a girl who was 6′ at her age. Anyway, even if the actress that plays her sister is around the same height, the older sister could wear taller shoes or they could just do what they did in LOTR and use a computer to make people however tall they want.

Leela @ 6:14 am on 01/19/2011

@Just in:

Um Kaya has won awards to so I don’t see your point there.

Kaya just captivates the screen when she comes on. I remeber the episode of skins where she said like 2 words and nobody could hold a candle 2 her.

All you teenys who have only seen the MTV skins have no idea. The british cast were amazing actors – Kaya the best of the lot.

Team Kaya

I haven’t read the books either….

Luxor @ 9:16 am on 01/19/2011

she has the face for Prim, and she has the talent to pull it off.

but she’s so FREAKIN TALL!! :( which is just too bad coz she’s my Prim when I read the books.

hi @ 1:54 pm on 01/19/2011

Selena Gomez will FIT that movie THE BEST! ;)

Zoe @ 3:52 pm on 01/19/2011

Jodelle Ferland and Chloe Moretz would be the perfect sisters. Jodelle=Katniss and Chloe=Primrose. Please let them be cast but only if they dont cast a person of color as Katniss which is what she should be. Oh yeah and willow Smith should be Rue. #JUSTSAYIN.

m @ 6:13 pm on 01/20/2011

Oh my gosh. She’d be perfect. No, no. She’d need to drink a lot of coffee.
