There are many, MANY new bits of information to find in the new official website, TheHungerGamesExclusive.com, but one that has us particularly excited is the confirmation from director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson that Elizabeth Banks’ character, fan-favorite Effie Trinket, will indeed find her way to District 13 somehow. While they don’t give many details, it’s fantastic to finally have that confirmed! You can read their stance on it above.
But that’s not the only interesting tidbit to come out of that article, but Francis and Nina also confirm the movie will not include a CGI version of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee to make up for the scenes he couldn’t film. Rumors of this surfaced immediately after Philip’s untimely passing, but now we have it straight from the mouth of the people in charge that some of the scenes he left unfilmed will be rewritten, and no CGI or robotic version of him will be used.
You should definitely go and read the full article, because how amazing is it, to be getting so much insight into the production so early on?! You don’t want to miss this one!
