Yet another media outlet claims to have their hands on The Hunger Games script. Life & Style say they’ve exclusively obtained it and can reveal the “juicy details of how the story’s been changed for the big screen.”
We’re hoping that what they’re reporting on is the draft written by Billy Ray … you can check out the comments here for a rundown on what that script contains, thanks to Kristi (her account contains spoilers)
But here’s what Life & Style have to say:
Like Twilight, the most addictive part of the saga will be the love triangle between its three stars, played by sexy newcomers X-Men: First Class star Jennifer Lawrence, The Kids Are All Right’s Josh Hutcherson and Miley Cyrus’ on-and-off again beau Liam Hemsworth. But in The Hunger Games book, the first in Suzanne Collins’ series, Liam’s character is largely absent since he doesn’t compete in the Hunger Games (an annual staged fight to the death between one teen boy and one teen girl). Life & Style can reveal that in the script, scenes have been added in to give the heartthrob a larger role on-screen and make the love triangle steamier and a bigger aspect early on in the franchise.
And while the book is mainly set inside the Arena, where the characters battle in The Hunger Games, moviegoers will also get to see behind-the-scenes moments set outside the stadium, showcasing the fighters’ mentor Haymitch, played by Woody Harrelson.
