The high quality actors that Lionsgate has managed to lock in for their "Hunger Games" franchise is rather impressive. From the title character found in Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, to Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson and the always incredible Philip Seymour Hoffman in the next installment, talent in certainly in full force.

Now comes word of yet another high caliber actress that may join the ranks. The lovely Julianne Moore is in talks to play President Alma Coin, the leader of District 13, in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1". Moore certainly has proven she can play any character under the sun as seen in such roles as "Boogie Nights", "The Hours" which earned her a Supporting Actress Academy Award nomination and more recently, "The Kids Are Alright". President Coin is a tough lady and a very fascinating character, and I have no doubt that Moore would crush the role.

Director Francis Lawrence, who helmed "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" has signed on to helm both installments of the "Mockingjay" films.

Do you think Moore is the right actress for the role? Let us know in the comments section below!

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" hits AMC Theatres on November 22nd.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
