‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Ready to Cast Julianne Moore?
While we wait patiently for the much-anticipated ‘Catching Fire‘ panel at Comic-Con 2013, we’ve got an update on the third and fourth installments of ‘The Hunger Games’ movies — ‘Carrie”s mom, Julianne Moore, is being eyed to join the cast.
According to Deadline, Moore, who recently starred in ‘The English Teacher’ and will be seen as Carrie’s crazy-religious mother in ‘Carrie’ and the wicked witch in ‘Seventh Son,’ is said to be a candidate for, and will likely accept the role of President Alma Coin in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1‘ and ‘Part 2.’
[SPOILER ALERT] ‘Hunger Games’ fans know Coin as the manipulative president of District 13, once thought to have been wiped out by the corrupt Capitol as a result of its rebellion. She’s a driving force in the third book, which is being developed into two parts for the film run, but Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss Everdeen never fully trusts her.
While ‘Catching Fire’ sees Katniss and Peeta thrown back into the arena for another round of Hunger Games, this time facing victors from previous generations, ‘Mockingjay’ follows the aftermath as Katniss struggles to become the symbol of strength the people of Panem need. The third and fourth films will bring back Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, as well as ‘Catching Fire”s new additions like Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright and Sam Claflin.
‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ comes out this Nov. 22, ‘Mockingjay – Part 1′ hits November 21, 2014 and ‘Mackingjay – Part 2′ comes November 20, 2015.
