Ok so here's the latest on the HG movie. (From here forward to be referred to as HGM. ;D)
As we all know, Lionsgate Entertainment has acquired worldwide distribution rights to The Hunger Games, which will be produced by Nina Jacobson's production company Color Force
Suzanne Collins has adapted the novel for film herself, and her script is being revised by screenwriter Billy Ray.     
It is anticipated to have a PG-13 rating.Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate President of Motion Picture Production, and Jim Miller, Lionsgate Senior Vice President of Motion Picture Production, will be in charge of overseeing the production of the movie. Here is a quote by Shearmur:      
"The Hunger Games is an incredible property and it is a thrill to bring it home to Lionsgate. This is exactly the kind of movie I came to Lionsgate to make: youthful, exciting, smart and edgy. We are looking forward to working with Nina and Suzanne to create a movie that satisfies audiences' hunger for high-quality entertainment."

Things are moving quite nicely and seem to be coming along well. I'm so excited for the movie! :D 
Next up: Katniss Wannabes!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!
