CATCHING FIRE – the sequel to Young Adult sensation THE HUNGER GAMES – may not have been released yet but that hasn’t stopped studio suits from plowing on full steam ahead with the two-part (because obviously) threequel MOCKINGJAY.
We first heard about hamster faced Natalie Dormer – or GAME OF THRONES’ Margaery Tyrell as she’ll be known forever – being cast as the bald-headed, tattooed camera crusader Cressida for both Parts 1 & 2.
And now a new member of her promo-producing, Capitol combating team has been revealed, with Lionsgate tweeting that Evan Ross – of previous 90210 fame – has been cast as cameraman Messalla.
Sandwiched between these announcements, in what’s been a busy week for the hibernating Twitter account, Australian actress Stef Dawson was unveiled as Annie Cresta. Dawson has done little outside of independent films thus far and the mentally-screwy, ex-victor now love interest of Finnick Odair (played by Sam Claflin in MOCKINJAY) will likely mark her first experience of the big-time.
CATCHING FIRE will see its UK release on November 11th with the MOCKINGJAY films coming November 21st 2014 and November 20th 2015 respectively. So, lots of hungry games for everyone.
