The Hunger Games cast is a large one, but there’s one character that’s notably absent from the cast list and the supposed script. The mayor’s daughter, Madge Undersee, is most likely not making the cut in the film adaption of Suzanne Collins’s famous book.
Take this bit of gossip with a grain of salt though. Lionsgate has been uber-protective of their expected blockbuster, not even allowing auditioning actors/actresses to read from the real script. So, would they actually allow media sites to get their hands on an early draft of the script?
Yes, according to HollywoodLife, who reportedly has a 137-page draft of the Hunger Games movie. In that supposed script, Madge doesn’t make a single appearance. There are other sites that contradict this–like a Hunger Games MySpace fanpage–which maintains a chart of all the announced cast. Under Madge, the space is blank, but there is a space kept open for her.
What can be taken from this? Don’t believe everything you read. Madge may–or may not–be making an appearance. But we can’t know for sure until Lionsgate gives the official word.
Plus, The Hunger Games movie is just about to start filming using the final script, not some supposed draft, and there’s still a year until the movie is released on March 23, 2012.
