Amanda Plummer lands Wiress role for Hunter Games sequel Catching Fire
Lionsgate's sent along the news of Plummer's casting, landing the role of the character whose eccentricity earns her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes, and though she doesn’t communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable in the Quarter Quell.
Great news for fans of the adaptation of the beloved Suzanne Collins' book, following the success of The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence.
Francis Lawrence takes over the reigns from Gary Ross as director, while Nina Jacobson’s Color Force produces with Jon Kilik.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.
Lionsgate® will release The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on November 22, 2013.
