The much-awaited sequel to the hit Hunger Games film will have a stellar cast.
According to reports, Academy Award-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman will join the cast of The Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire. Hoffman, who won an Oscar for his role in the 2005 film Capote, will play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new head game maker who is overseeing the annual, televised fight-to-the-death staged by a repressive government in post-apocalyptic North America.
Sources said Catching Fire takes place a year after The Hunger Games. It features previous game survivors Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Peeta Mellark, played by Josh Hutcherson, as they are hurled back into the 75th annual games thanks to the government’s evil machinations.
The second installment of the hit film is scheduled to hit cinemas on November 22, 2013. Even this early, fans of the books and the first film are eagerly awaiting the release of Catching Fire in theaters around the world.
