Abigail Breslin - Class Project For Abigail Breslin

Abigail Breslin is set to star in 'The Class Project'.

The 15-year-old actress - who shot to fame in 2006's 'Little Miss Sunshine' - has agreed to appear in the indie drama, which will be directed by Stan Brooks.

The film will follow a pair of sisters - one played by Abigail - forced to endure an alcoholic mother and her string of abusive boyfriends.

The movie - which is based on a script by Fabrizio Fillippo and Adam Till - will begin shooting at the end of the month, although no further cast members have been announced.

Earlier this year, Abigail revealed she would love to take on the lead role in 'The Hunger Games'.

While fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy have previously called for the young star to play Prim in the highly anticipated film adaptation, Abigail admitted Prim's older sister Katniss would be her character of choice.

She said: "I think it's an amazing book. I'm a huge fan of the books. It's amazing, obviously it would be great [to be in the film].

"Obviously I would love to play Katniss. All the characters in the books are amazing. It's a very cool book. The characters in it are very strong and very cool. It's an amazing series."

The books focus on 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in the country of Panem where North America once stood.

Jennifer Lawrence is set to play the role.
