Julianne Moore could be joining a juggernaut soon as Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence are currently eying her for the role of President Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2.
Per Deadline, the studio would like to move quickly with Moore starring in both of the final films as the manipulative politician who figures brightly in the finale as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) becomes a symbol of rebellion against the autocratic Capitol government.
Danny Strong (HBO’s “Game Change,” which also starred Moore) has been tapped to write the two-part Hunger Games finale Mockingjay. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will be in theatres on November 21st, 2014, with Part 2 following on November 20th, 2015.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Book Synopsis
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’ family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’ groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.
