Twitter fans got a surprise yesterday when superstar songstress, Taylor Swift revealed her song for the Hunger Games film, “Safe and Sound”.

Swift recorded the song with band, The Civil Wars and the song will appear on the Lionsgate soundtrack for the film.

The Hunger Games is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. The film will be opening in theaters on March 23 and is being directed by Gary Ross.

The film truly has a star-studded cast. It features Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Elizabeth Banks, Dayo Okeniyi, Amandla Stenberg, Jack Quaid, Leven Rambin, Willow Shields, Paula Malcomson, Ian Nelson, Kalia Prescott, Ethan Jamieson, Tara Macken, Chris Mark, Jacqueline Emerson, Ashton Moio, Kara Petersen, Sam Ly, Leigha Hancock, Samuel Tan, Mackenzie Lintz, Imanol Yepez-Frias, Annie Thurman, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Latarsha Rose, Brooke Bundy, Lenny Kravitz, Toby Jones, Amber Chaney, Kimiko Gelman, Nelson Ascencio and Donald Sutherland.

On August 8, 2011, while still shooting the film, Lionsgate announced that a film adaptation of the second novel in The Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire, is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2013. Lionsgate entered negotiations with screenwriter Simon Beaufoy to adapt the novel for screen, since the post-production schedule for The Hunger Games is too crowded for Ross and Collins to adapt the next film as originally planned. Ross is still expected to return as director for the sequel.
