LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Will Alex Pettyfer be “The Hunger Game’s” “boy with the bread”?
Casting for the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ beloved novel is still undecided, but Alex told Access Hollywood that he’s met with producers about the role of Peeta Mellark.
“Yes I did,” Alex told Access on Thursday at the “Beastly” premiere in Los Angeles when asked about the role of Katniss Everdeen’s closet ally in the story that pits children against each other in a competitive duel to the death.
“Yes, but undecided yet, still [waiting] to see a script,” Alex added.
In January, “True Grit” star Hailee Steinfeld told Access that she’d love a shot at playing the dynamic Katniss.
“That’s… I mean… fingers are crossed,” Hailee told Access at the time about the lead character. “Fingers crossed!”
“The Hunger Games,” is slated to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
