Natalie Dormer Set For The Hunger Games: Mockinjay

We’re creeping closer to the release of the second Hunger Games film, Catching Fire. But work has long since been started on the scripts for the two remaining adventures, the first and second parts of Mockingjay, adapted from Suzanne Collins’ third and final book in the series. Some new casting has come to light for the movie, with Natalie Dormer and Stef Dawson joining the Mockingjay roster.

Mockingjay sees Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) leading 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 decide for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance.

Dormer is finding her way into every part of fandom these days, between roles in The Tudors, The Fades, Game Of Thrones and Captain America: The First Avenger. In Mockingjay, she’ll be Cressida, a filmmaker assigned to shadow Katniss who hopes to turn her into even more of a hero to rouse the Districts against the Capitol.

Aussie actress Dawson, meanwhile, will be Annie Cresta, the addled Hunger Games victor who won the 70th annual Games despite suffering a mental breakdown after witnessing her District 4 partner get beheaded. Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) loves her and tries to protect her, and she gets a reprieve in Catching Fire, when the older Mags takes her place in the Quarter Quell, but the Capitol arrests her in Mockingjay, essentially taking her hostage to show its disapproval of Finnick.

Catching Fire will be with us on November 21. Mockingjay Part 1 lands on the same date in 2015, while Part 2 arrives on November 20, 2015.
