Oscar nominee set to play president of the futuristic world
Julianne Moore is in early talks to join the cast of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," an individual familar with the project has told TheWrap.
The Oscar nominee would play President Alma Coin — the leader of the autocratic society behind the gladiatorial games — in the two-part finale. Moore joins a cast that will include heavyweights Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jennifer Lawrence and heartthrobs Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.
She previously co-starred with Hutcherson in the Oscar-nominated 2010 film "The Kids Are All Right."
Moore recently scored Emmy gold for her portrayal of a different politician, vice presidential aspirant and "you betcha" spouter Sarah Palin in last year's HBO film "Game Change." She next stars in a remake of "Carrie" and the medieval action adventure "The Seventh Son."
"Mockingjay" will be released in two parts, with the first installment hitting theaters on Nov. 21, 2014, and the second chapter debuting on Nov. 20, 2015.
