Lionsgate announced on Friday via their Twitter account that Julianne Moore will be joining the cast of ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2.’ Moore will play President Alma Coin.
It was reported by Deadline back in June that Julianne was in talks to join the Hunger Games franchise, but now it’s official! President Alma Coin ‘plays a key role in the resistance movement against The Capitol and the evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland).’
Moore is joining a star-studded cast that includes Sutherland, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson and Natalie Dormer. Francis Lawrence will direct the films based on Suzanne Collins‘ best-selling “Hunger Games” trilogy. Danny Strong will write the scripts.
