Rumour: Julianne Moore to join The Hunger Games: Mockingjay?

Star linked to role of President Alma Coin

The Hunger Games franchise may be about to add some serious star-power to its third and fourth films, with Deadline reporting that Julianne Moore is on Lionsgate’s wish-list for its two-part adaptation of Mockingjay.

Apparently the studio likes Moore for the role of President Alma Coin, a manipulative politician who figures prominently in the final book of the series.

Moore has previous with political figures, having recently played Sarah Palin in HBO’s Game Change, and would represent something of a casting coup for the studio.

Moore would follow in the foorsteps of heavyweight actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeffrey Wright, both of whom joined the series for second instalment Catching Fire.

That episode will be next to land in cinemas, with the film set to hit the UK on 22 November 2013. Mockingjay Part 1 will follow on 21 November 2014, before Part 2 concludes the series on 20 November 2015.

Would Moore be a good fit for the role? Tell us, below!

      I quite liked the Hunger Games movie, although the first half was marred by its 'Greengrass' swishy camera. Its supposed to make the film 'edgy' but just ended up being annoying and pretensious. Go home camera, you are drunk.

      I don't think that the Hunger Games is of a good enough standard to attract stars like Julianne Moore and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. If the film had been focused on more of an adult audience and included more from the books rather than directing the film at a younger audience, turning it into a teen romance, i believe that Moore would be more attracted to starring in this franchise.

      I have a better idea- they could cast almost anyone else.
