tye-sheridanFirst up in the latest casting news for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 & 2 is the addition of Dawson as Annie Cresta.  She’ll likely be the object of some fan jealousy as her character just so happens to be the love interest of one Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) in addition to being a former victor of the games.  Dawson will show up in the “third and fourth installments of heroine Katniss Everdeen’s (Jennifer Lawrence) journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol.  As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.”

According to the press release, Sheridan will join The Forger, “the story of a former child art prodigy and second generation petty thief, Ray Cutter (Travolta) who arranges to buy his way out of prison to spend time with his ailing son, Will Cutter (Sheridan), only to be forced to change his plans and commit one last big job for the syndicate who financed his early release.”  The film is currently in pre-production and plans to start principal photography this October in Boston.

Deadline reports that Eastwood is the latest addition to Fury, a drama centering on a Sherman Tank crew in the closing days of World War II.  Eastwood will play Sergeant Miles.
