The first big news for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out. Jeff Sneider of “Variety” has posted on Twitter (@TheInSneider) that Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee.
Before we get too excited, we still don’t know if Hoffman has accepted to be the next Head Gamemaker in the film.
Lionsgate has not commented on the casting claim.
Catching Fire is due to start shooting in September in Atlanta and possibly Hawaii.
Do you think casting Hoffman would be a good choice for Plutarch Heavensbee? Personally, I think he’d be amazing. Let us know what you think in the comments.
