The Hunger Games and its two sequels, Catching Fire and Mockingjay (how often was I asked for this before it came out???? - a gazillion times!), are rarely on our shelves, and when they are, their thumped and thumbed appearance (we have multiple copies) shows the popularity of this trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
Don't hold your breath just yet, but a film of the first book is in production. Release date for the movie is 2013. The director is Gary Ross, who directed Pleasantville, one of my favourite films. There's a bit more news about the film here from the Wall St Journal, and this is the IMDB page for The Hunger Games.
Think I might put the WSJ article in my wall cupboard, to alert the kids.
