Great casting news from Lionsgate today. Amanda Plummer has been cast in the role of Wiress in the upcoming sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. You’ll most likely remember her from her role as “Honey Bunny” in the restaurant robbery scene in Pulp Fiction.
Wiress, the District Three Tribute, earned her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes that called the pair (Wiress and Beetee) of District Three Tributes “Nuts and Volts.”Wiress doesn’t communicate traditionally, although her observations and contributions prove invaluable in the 75th Hunger Games Quarter Quell.
Francis Lawrence will be directing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with Nina Jacobson’s Color Force producing in tandem with Jon Kilik. Lionsgate has set the release date for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
This NerdBastard is looking forward to what Plummer can bring to the role of Wiress, she has always been great at playing the broken character with that tiny core of inner strength.
