We’re learning more about The Hunger Games movie bit by bit – including snippets of information about who may or may not have the script (especially for the role of Katniss). Now Entertainment Weekly has managed to get a hold of an early draft of it – with a double page feature in their latest edition.
The script, wrtten by Suzanne Collins and then worked on a bit further by screenwriteter Billy Ray is set to have a PG-13 rating so it remains appropriate for the book’s teen readers. EW points out that the draft script includes a detailed retelling of the Games themeselves, which we all know are a brutal blood sport in which teenage tributes are forced into a televised fight to the death.
Producer Nina Jacobsen told EW that it’s always going to be an intense subject matter, but that you can tell the story with some restraint.
