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

By  | 

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!
