This November sees the release of sequel, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE, as we see just how Jennifer Lawrence’s bow-carrying heroine Katniss Everdeen is coping following her survival in the fight-the-death tournament. Suzanne Collins concluding novel, Mockingjay, will next be split into two by Lionsgate Films (much like they milked the woeful final TWILIGHT story) and casting is already underway.
Director Francis Lawrence, who will guide the remainder of the franchise following Gary Ross exit with the first film, has his eyes on Julianne Moore for the role of President Alma Coin. A mean and manipulative politician, who plays a pivotal role in the finale as Katniss’ actions throughout the series becomes a symbol of the apocalyptic uprising and the brewing undercurrent of rebellion against The Capitol authorities.
Do you think Moore has the odds in her favour for the part? Do let us know if she’s a good candidate.
