Hunger Games Team Pitching Cyrano de Bergerac Adaptation

Director Gary Ross and producer Nina Jacobson may be working on The Hunger Games film, but they are already thinking about future projects. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo has pitched an adaptation of Edmond Rostand‘s Cyrano de Bergerac with a social networking twist.

Here’s more from the article: “it is understood to be a contemporary story revolving around Cyrano de Bergerac, a man who is in love with a woman but is forced to woo her surreptitiously on behalf of a far more handsome but less expressive suitor.  The twist here is the story is told using today’s vast and complex social media tools.”

What do you think? At the moment The Hunger Games production team is wrapping casting. Just last week, they announced that Woody Harrelson will be playing Haymitch Abernathy.
