Hailee Steinfeld

Hailee Steinfeld has confirmed that she has met with director Gary Ross regarding the role of Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming adaptation of THE HUNGER GAMES.

MTV caught up with Steinfeld while on the red carpet at this year's Academy Awards. Here is what she had to say: "It's definitely something that we're taking one day at a time and making sure that everything is in place." Check out more from Steinfeld, and more about this role, after the break.

Hunger Games actresses

Steinfeld is not the only actress up for this highly coveted role. Kaya Scodelario, Chloe Moretz, Malese Jow, and Lyndsy Fonseca are also in contention. I personally would be happy with either Moretz or Steinfeld in the role.

Who do you think is the best choice for the role of Katniss?

Check out the video interview for yourself below:

THE HUNGER GAMES is scheduled for release in March of 2012.

    I’m not sure about any of the actresses except Fonseca. I have read the books, and enjoyed them. Fonseca is starting too look too old for Katniss IMO. Moretz may still be too young, also. Steinfeld is barely of the age herself, but after True Grit I’m sure she could pull it off.
