It’s still early in the casting process for the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hunger Games, but there are already some names popping up in connection with the much-desired lead role of Katniss Everdeen. The heavily fan-touted Skins actress Kaya Scodelario apparently tweeted yesterday that she had received “a certain script for a film based on a book,” referring to the Suzanne Collins-penned screenplay. The tweets were later deleted, but a screen capture can be found here. Additionally, Lyndsy Fonseca of Kick-Ass and Nikita told NextMovie at New York Comic Con that she was also sent the script. Not to toot our own Magic 8-Ball—it usually just says “Ask Again Later”—but this means that for now it’s basically EW’s pick vs. EW readers’ pick.

Except…there are rumors abounding that Fonseca’s Kick-Ass co-star Chloe Moretz is lobbying for the part as well, which puts the age range of our potential Katnisses from 13 all the way to 23. Clearly there’s still a ways to go before we find out definitively who will be notching her first arrow as The Hunger Games heroine, but what do you think of the options so far? Is Moretz too young? Fonseca too old? Scodelario too just right? All three are hoping the odds will be ever in their favor, but there can only be one Katniss Everdeen. Who gets your vote?
