OFFICIAL: Bruno Gunn Is Brutus In “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

Lionsgate has just announced 43 years old Bruno Gunn is set to play Brutus, the former victor of previous Hunger Games from District 2.

Check out the full press release below:

BRUNO GUNN CAST AS BRUTUS IN LIONSGATE’S THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE

Santa Monica, CA, August 8, 2012- Lionsgate® and the filmmakers of THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE are pleased to announce that Bruno Gunn has been cast in the role of Brutus in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel Catching Fire. Brutus is a former Career victor from District 2.

Gunn has co-starred in a variety of films, most recently the comedy hit Bad Teacher, and is recognizable to TV audiences from frequent guest starring roles including on “The Office”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Sons Of Anarchy,” “Oz,” and “Prison Break.”

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark.   Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts.  Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE will be directed by Francis Lawrence, and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the second in a trilogy that has sold more than 50 million books in print and digital in the U.S. alone.

Lionsgate will release THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE on November 22, 2013.

Ongoing casting news and information for the film can be found at: www.CatchingFireCasting.com

Bruno Gunn as Brutus will join “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” cast following casting announcements for  WiressPlutarch HeavensbeeJohanna, Mags and fellow District 2 former Hunger Games Victor Enobaria.

A list of Bruno Gunn’s precious works can also be found on IMDb.

The Hunger Games, rated PG13, was released on 22 March 2012 and DVD and Blu-Ray pre-orders are now available. “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is scheduled for release on 22 November 2013 in USA.

BREAKING: Meta Golding cast as Enobaria “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

It looks like we have our Enobaria! Lionsgate has just announced Meta Golding is cast as Enobaria in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

For those who are know sure about who Enobaria is, here’s a spoilers free little background on the character taken from The Hunger Games Wiki.

Enobaria was a tribute native to District 2, the most loyal district to the Capitol. When Enobaria had become old enough to participate in the Hunger Games, she volunteered to perform in the 62nd Hunger Games, meaning she was 17 when she won her games…After winning the Games, she had her teeth cosmetically altered to end in sharp points, like fangs, and tipped with gold so they would be a formidable weapon as well as virtually indestructible.

You can check out Meta Golding in Criminal Minds in the short clip below. Video might contain spoilers for Criminal Minds.

Press release from Lionsgate is as below:

The Hunger Games mentioned in Lifestyle magazine

Other than The Hunger Games showing this year, there are many other blockbusters that will be showed this year. In the Feburary issue of the Lifestyle magazine, they did a preview of the movies that is coming up.

Image of page.

Close up on The Hunger Games part!

Just in case the image does not load, the words are typed out below:

Based on the trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games revolves around a dystopian society, in which teenagers and children are chosen to fight in a televised battle. The books have a massive, largely young adult following that rivals that of Twilight, and is poised to be the next hit franchise. Brooding romance it is not, but after glittering vampires and shirtless werewolves, a teenage tale of war and survival could be a welcome change of taste.

I don’t think that the Lifestyle magazine is sold outside, but if your parents are members of NTUC, your parents should have it! 🙂

‘The Hunger Games’ will be released in Singapore on 22 March 2012.
