Lionsgate has released a (slightly) spiffy animated poster for it’s Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. It was unlocked by HG fans on Facebook. Apparently, if you creep FB long enough, you get an animated logo for a teaser of a teaser of a trailer of a trailer…
OMG guys, it’s a logo, let’s check it out right fucking now!
The next installment in the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire is getting ready to start shooting this fall and fans are eager for news as to who will be joining the cast for the new film. In addition to making sure all the essential characters are on board to return, they have quite a few people to add. So far, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Amanda Plummer, Jena Malone and Lynn Cohen have all been confirmed. The latest addition to the mix appears to be Patrick St. Esprit (Sons of Anarchy).
He will be taking on the role of Romulus Thread, Head Peacekeeper sent to maintain control in District 12 as the stirrings of revolution begin. He has not been officially confirmed by Lionsgate, but from all reports it’s pretty much a done deal.
Thanks to CinemaBlend for the heads-up.
