Stenberg played the character Rue in “The Hunger Games” and her credits include “As You Are,” which won the Jury Award at Sundance in February. She’s attached to star in “The Hate U Give,” a YA novel inspired by Black Lives Matter, set up with Fox 2000 and Temple Hill.

Robinson also starred in Rob Reiner’s “Being Charlie” and “The 5th Wave” with Chloe Moretz.

Meghie made her feature directorial debut with “Jean of the Joneses.” Goodloe wrote the script for Blake Lively’s “Age of Adaline” at Lionsgate and Fox’s upcoming “The Mountains Between Us,” starring Idris Elba.
