Here is an official statement Amandla made regarding being cast in The Hunger Games! I think Amandla is going to be a perfect Rue!
“I love the Hunger Games trilogy. I’ve read the first book five times.
It’s a real page turner and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Suzanne Collins is such a vivid storyteller. I’m so thrilled that I get to bring Rue to life on the big screen.”
