Lionsgate continues to nab prestigious, Academy Award-nominated actors for its feature film adaptation of the Hunger Games book series.  We previously heard that Julianne Moore was being eyed to play the integral role of Alma Coin in the two-part finale The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, and today Lionsage has confirmed that Moore’s deal has closed and she will indeed be portraying Coin in the film.  Francis Lawrence took over from Gary Ross and directed the second installment of the franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but in addition to finishing up post-production on that film he has been very busy prepping the two-film finale Mockingjay.

Moore joins other new additions for Mockingjay that include Stef Dawson as Annie Cresta, Natalie Dormer as Cressida, and Evan Ross as Messalla.  The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 opens November 2014, followed by Part 2 in November 2015.  Hit the jump for the press release.

    Perfect! When I read the books I actually pictured Julianne Moore in the role. So this is just fine for me. What isn’t fine is how the whole book was a jumbled, somewhat dull, turgidly plotted mess, and the 2nd one was half good, didn’t like the 3rd one. 1st one is excellent, though movie was better, and I should probably stop my rant…
