We reported a couple of months ago that the wonderful Julianne Moore was in talks to join "The Hunger Games" franchise as President Alma Coin. It has now been confirmed that Moore is officially going to play the badass female rebellion leader against the Capital, in both parts of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay".
An incredible cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Stanley Tucci, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson and many other familiar faces, will be seen in the upcoming films alongside Moore. Having built a career of many diverse and memorable characters, Moore will no doubt prove to be a welcomed addition to the franchise with her class and talent.
In other "Hunger Games" world domination news, Alan Gould from the Evercore investment group is apparently predicting the next installment "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" will make $950 million worldwide, racking up $375 million domestically and $575 million overseas. Could it be possible that the sequel will hit these kind of numbers, being that the first film made $691 million total? That is quite the big jump indeed but I suppose anything is possible.
