Did Emma Watson Land the Lead Role in The Hunger Games?

We’re thinking all signs point to yes! Emma Watson just dropped the bomb on her official website that she’ll be taking a semester or two off from Brown University to work on her “professional and acting projects.” And we’re reading between the lines and assuming that by acting projects she means “playing Katniss in The Hunger Games.”

Fine, nothing is confirmed yet, but Emma is a front-runner for the role (Sorry, Hailee Steinfeld!) So it’s totally possible that her college hiatus is to do the movie!

What do you think? Are we just jumping to conclusions or do you think Emma landed the role? Do you hope she did? Tell us in the comments!

    Heard she did land the Katniss role, Emma’s awesome, luv her. Hailee will have more opps and she’s still young… so excited for ‘The Hunger Games’ movie. :)

  • cali

    u have to play the lead in the hunger gameS!!!!!!!!!!!U’LL DO A-M-A-ZING!!!!!!!!!!

  • Marie

    Emma said she won’t be in a Franchise again and if,not so soon again.With Acting Project she means Perks and the filming is in 2 Months.If she will do more for People Tree again,then she must work with them in the next few Months

    Do you think she is a Robot,that she can do all Things and everything?

    and it would be nice if they would take unknown People or Hailee.Give them a Chance or make a true Casting.It sucks,that People give just Celebs such Roles again and again.

    I’m gonna be so annoyed if they get celebritys to play the parts. I think unknown people should play them because when it’s a book like The Hunger Games then you can’t make a girl who is poor be a famous celebrity, and I don’t think she wants to do it.

  • tabitoo

    Everyone was saying the same thing when she was Rumored! to doing Perks. “She can’t she’s still in school. She’s still too busy doing Harry Potter…Blah Blah Blah. She can do what she wants. If she wants to do Hunger Games then she’s going to do it. I for one hope she is cast. Love the books best series since HP. I’m also a Twilight fan and I think Hunger Games is essentially better than Twilight as far as being very well written and such a political and well written story. In some ways I even put it above HP in the way the story is written and just the the emotion of the characters of the story. I think it would take someone with great emotional depth to do the main character justice and I believe Emma would be the best fit for this.

  • Anna

    That is an awful picture of her! And I highly doubt this. She’s doing the Perks of Being a Wallflower, duh!

  • Emma Watson

    JUST SHUT UP!

  • FinnickIsUpset

    Well one site is stupid… shes obviously doing Perks Of Being A Wallflower. AND there have been absolutely no articles concerning Emma Watson and the Hunger Games ever since , well , now. she wasnt even on the 30 actresses considered list. gosh , gossip sites and jumping to conclusions.
    P.S. dont worry finnick is not upset at this coz this is pure stupidity.

  • Nope.

    I so highly doubt this. Their reading between the lines says: making it up as we go along.

  • hungergames.addict

    yeah, emma fits the role of katniss….she should be on it…and callan mcauliffe can be his peeta…. :)

  • AnnaBanana

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i wanted Malese Jow or the girl who was annabeth in percy jackson!

  • Bruno

    I don’t think “Hunger Games” qualifies as a “big girl” project. I don’t think she would leave Brown for that long just to film another teen franchise.

  • Gabby

    Emma would NOT do another fantasy series after spending 11 years of her life filming the Potter movies. Hello, Logic! They’re just using her name to get press.

    Well she is already confirmed to be filming Perks of Being a Wallflower this summer, so that might be it. Also she has a ton of press to do surrounding the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere such as movie premieres and endless interviews for different countries, so she really doesn’t have time for school. Also, I couldn’t see her jumping right into another series/franchise immediately after Harry Potter ended. She said she didn’t want to do that.

    That’s an interesting thought. She worked with Gary Ross before.

    • Elias

      Not sure if my previous note was sent BUT Shazz has about 2 weeks to go until the birth of her secnod foal. Can\’t wait. The fun will then begin with imprinting and all the ground work for the next 2 years.

  • anonymous

    i hope its not her! i want unknown an actress. it won’t be good if its a popular actress. twilight had unknown peeps and look how popular it was! :P
