There’s going to be a Lionsgate presentation at this year’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The conference is all about debuting upcoming films and products – taking along some of the big stars, producers and directors to talk to cinema onwers and operators from around the world.
Lionsgate will be giving its presentation on Thursday April 18 with word that Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair, will be there.
Collider has been down at the venue and spied this really huge display for Catching Fire. As you can see, Lionsgate has placed huge versions of the Character osters next to one another in a massive display.
They’re also reporting that Lionsgate will be showing new footage of the film at CinemaCon. We will be sure to keep you updated.
Sources tell The Playlist that both Wasikowska and Aggeliki are “in the mix” for the Johanna part, as Lawrence is said to be considering both big names and lesser talents. The Playlist was the first outlet to report that Gary Ross wouldn’t be returning to direct Catching Fire, so I’m inclined to put considerable weight behind their story. Wasikowska is an exciting prospect as she’s done swell work in films like Jane Eyre and The Kids Are All Right, but Aggeliki is a bona fide newcomer. She has roles in the upcoming pics R.I.P.D. and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, but we haven’t seen her act in anything yet so it’s hard to gauge who would be a better pick for Johanna.
The Playlist adds that both actresses have been in discussions for the part, but Aggeliki could officially sign on in a matter of days. That said, nothing’s certain just yet so Lawrence’s final choice could be someone else entirely. We should hear word soon either way, as production is scheduled to begin immenintley.
