Latarsha Rose and Brooke Bundy have scored the roles of Portia and Octavia in the upcoming film adaptation of “The Hunger Games” for Lionsgate.
The story chronicles Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her defiant struggle to survive in a future dystopia where The Capitol requires its twelve subjugated districts to atone for their onetime insurrection through the annual “Hunger Games,” a fight-to-the-death event held in a fantastical man made arena.
Portia is the stylist of Katniss’ love interest Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). Octavia is a member of Katniss’ prep team. The first photos of Lawrence as Katniss have appeared in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and have gone online via the film’s Facebook page:
