The news comes via Deadline, which claims Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence want Moore for the part, which would feature in the last two films in The Hunger Games series, Mockingjay: Part 1 and Part 2.
As fans of the book know, [spoilers] Alma Coin is the political leader of the resistance that Katniss teams up with to fight back against President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and the Capitol. Ultimately, she proves to be just as much of a villain.
Fansites are currently debating different actresses for the role of Coin, and recently discussed Moore as a possibility. Anyone else wonder if Deadline’s “exclusive” came from someone’s misunderstanding of this discussion?
So far, there has been no word from Lionsgate about any official casting for Mockingjay, which is scheduled to begin filming in September.
