The Hunger Games prequel series focused on the future dictator Snow has been quite busy adding to its cast. While it seemed like they had their cast together, it turns out one more has joined the games, as Ballad of the Songbirds and Snakes has added Euphoria‘s Hunter Schafer. She’ll take on the role of Coriolanus’s cousin, Tigris Snow, who acts as his advisor and mentor.
Francis Lawrence is taking on the directing role for the film with Tom Blyth cast in the main role. Rachel Zegler is also in the cast as the titular Songbird, as she’ll play a tribute during the tenth Hunger Games, who is being taught by Coriolanus Snow as his lineage is slowly fading. Zegler‘s Lucy Gray Baird catches everyone’s attention with her song, and their battle for survival may define their future developments.
Nina Jacobson will produce the film and it may be the spark to revive the popular franchise. The franchise was a massive success back when it started in 2012. It also put Jennifer Lawrence on the map as a strong box office draw, and it also kickstarted a new era of dystopian post-apocalyptic future storylines, as many tried to adapt various popular Young Adult novels like the Divergent series.
