Hunger Games Employs All Of Young Hollywood

Euphoria's Hunter Schafer has also joined the cast as Tigris Snow, Coriolanus's cousin, and confidante. Others in the cast include Irene Boehm, Cooper Dillon, Luna Kuse, Kjell Brutscheidt, Dimitri Abold, Athena Strates, Dakota Shapiro, George Somner, and Vaughan Reilly. Francis Lawrence is behind the director's chair.

The film has been in front of cameras for a couple of months now, but this sounds like they finally have the casting completed. The franchise has grossed over $3 billion worldwide, so Lionsgate has a lot riding on this adaptation. Hopefully, it can elevate the source material a little bit better than the last two Hunger Games films did. Neither of those films was very good, and that they were split into two films was painful to sit through. Lionsgate has their work cut out for them to erase that from people's minds and get excited about Hunger Games all over again.
