Suzanne Collins best-selling novel turned film "The Hunger Games" isn't the only anticipated film series to date. With "Divergent", "The Mortal Instruments" and "Vampire Academy" filming their own film adaptations, it's not surprising that their lead stars will become the next Hollywood "It" girls and be as famous as "Hunger Games'" Jennifer Lawrence. Here are all the next leading ladies viewers have to keep their eyes on.

Ever since "Hunger Games" had made its' debut on the big screen, its' lead star, Jennifer Lawrence, catapulted into the limelight. From gracing covers of countless fashion magazines to owning the red carpet, Lawrence instantly became an iconic Hollywood star. Add the fact that Lawrence won an Oscar Academy award, this actress proves she isn't just another pretty face in the business.

However, Jennifer Lawrence may have some competition for the limelight with three other leading ladies in each of their own film adaptations.

First off is "Divergent" star, Shailene Woodley. "The Descendants" star has come a long way and has finally nabbed the coveted role of Tris in Veronica Roth's "Divergent." Apart from the said role, Woodley is also set for the part of Hazel Grace Lancaster in John Green's best-selling novel, "The Fault in Our Stars." Woodley has already begun her take on the fashion industry with spreads for Interview and Marie Claire magazine. Soon as "Divergent" and "The Fault in Our Stars" hit the big screen, Woodley will be equally popular as Jennifer Lawrence.

Next is "The Mortal Instruments" star, Lily Collins. Being Phil Collins' daughter didn't secure a spot in Hollywood for Lily. In fact, Lily had to work her way up to the top starring in a few Indie films before nabbing the big role of Clary Fray in Cassandra Clare's novels, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." The film is set for release by August 21, 2013 and by that time Lily will instantly become a household name like Lawrence.

Last but certainly not the least is Zoe Deutch. Fans may remember Zoe from "The Suite Life on Deck." Now, Deutch has bigger fish to fry starring as Rose Hathaway in the upcoming film adaptation of "Vampire Academy", the novels written by Richelle Mead.
