Mockingjay rumours!

Image

After the previous rumour of Mockingjay possibly starting filming in September, news of Mockingjay is starting to roll out recently.

Have you ever dreamt of wearing amazing runway outfits? Having your hair done in an abstract and unique way? Or perhaps wearing extremely detailed make up that you only see in the movies?

If the answer is yes to any of these, then we want to meet you. We have an upcoming feature that requires amazing faces and bodies, and we are looking for people that can bring unusual characters to life.

Last time for this ‘science fiction trilogy turned film series,’ we had you put yourself on tape but because this one is vastly important, we are requiring we meet each of you in person. If chosen, please know this will be a long shoot, requiring multiple days.

Due to the detailed nature of this film, we are casting this project in stages. This round we are ONLY requesting those to submit between the ages of 18-40. We are sorry, but no children and no one over 40 at this time! (Those submission dates will be released at a later time).

If you are interested in submitting for this project, please e-mail CLCEccentric@gmail.com. Please include 3 pictures (head and body), your age, height, weight, and all contact info. Please put your gender, ethnicity and age in the subject box.
Example: Male, Caucasian, 31

Please list your availability this week in the body of the e-mail.

Even though the name “Mockingjay” or Hunger Games is not used in the article, it does sound like Mockingjay indeed. From what is being said, could the casting be for the capitol citizens?

William Levy seems to be in talks to join Mockingjay Part One. However this has not been confirmed yet by either Lionsgate or the guy himself.

I certainly hope that we will have more news on the casting as the filming date draws near!

RUMOUR: Sam Claflin Might Play Finnick Odair?

Following the news of Lynn Cohen officially joining “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” as Mags, who is also Finnick Odair’s mentor, undoubtedly one of the most popular characters in The Hunger Games trilogy.

Deadline noted Sam Claflin has a high possibility of being cast as Finnick Odair, the male victor of 65th Hunger Games from District 4.

Here’s the quote from Deadline:

Sam Claflin has been the favorite, but he had a problem with an option owed to another studio that presented date problems. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter stars Ben Walker, Boyd Holbrook and Tyler Hoechlin were the other competitors for that role, but it looks now like things have cleared for Claflin and that he’ll play the role. You’ve seen him in Snow White And The Huntsman and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Please treat this as a rumour. All official “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” casting news can be found on www.CatchingFireCasting.com. If you don’t see it there, chances are it’s nothing but a rumour.

What do you think if Sam Claflin were to play Finnick Odair?

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.

RUMOR: Jena Malone Is Lionsgate’s Choice For Johanna Mason

The Hollywood Reporter recently reported 27 years old Jena Malone (pictured below) (Pride & Prejudice, Sucker Punch) is offered the role of Johanna Mason in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

The Sucker Punch actress is in talks to play snide tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, a key role that will be reprised in the trilogy’s third installment,Mockingjay.

Malone has the offer and is in early negotiations for the part, according to sources. The move nixes premature reports that pegged newbie actress-model Zoe Aggeliki as the front-runner to play the ax-wielding former Hunger Games winner from District 7, who aligns with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) in their return to the arena for an all-star death match.

The role requires a mix of wit and physicality. Although Mason enjoys some of the best one-liners in the Suzanne Collins novel, her first appearance finds her stripping out of her tribute costume in an effort to make Katniss uncomfortable.

The movie is heading for a late-September start with director Francis Lawrence.

Malone, repped by Gersh and Hirsch Wallerstein, most recently appeared in History’s hit miniseries Hatfields & McCoys.

The Hollywood Reporter had also previously reported Philip Seymour Hoffman was offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.

Till date, there is no official confirmation from Lionsgate in regards to casting rumours yet so please treat all news as rumours.
