Targeted for a PG-13 rating, the film is based on the young adult novel and tells the tale of a dystopic future and the annual “Hunger Games,” a fight to the death on live television.

Of the book’s 12 competing Districts, four have now been cast and the film’s official Facebook page has been updated with the below teaser image.
