Hunger Games was one of the best science fiction dystopian films that scored major hits in cinemas. People absolutely loved the bold sci-fi take on capitalism, and what unchecked dictatorship can lead to. There is the concept of a Capital that rules with an iron fist over the twelve districts. Keeping them impoverished and unable to fend for themselves, the Capital makes sure that the people of those twelve districts are never able to mount a proper resistance against the atrocities of the Capital. To further demotivate them, the Capital organizes Hunger Games every year where the denizens of the districts kill each other.
The entire game changes when a young girl named Katniss Everdeen is selected for the 12th Hunger Games. There, a series of events unfold which lead to Katniss joining hands with rebels and finally relinquishing the claws of Capital over the districts.
For the fans of the epic sci-fi dystopian film series, there is some good news. Lionsgate has been hard at work in developing another film of the series. Hunger Games is returning to theaters once more. However, this time, we have a new protagonist and the series will cover the prequel to the trilogy.
Suzanne Collin’s novel The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will be adapted into a movie. President Coriolanus Snow will return once more like a younger version of himself. The actor Tom Blyth will play the role of the white-haired villain who makes things very difficult for Katniss Everdeen and serves as one of the antagonists of the series. The prequel will tell his origin story and his involvement with the 10th annual Hunger Games.
The lead actress, Rachel Zegler has been cast as the protagonist Lucy Gray. The choice of the lead actress has been praised by many. Snow is not the president yet, and as usual, he will have to tackle Lucy Gray’s choices through the hunger games. His moves can either make or break his family name. Like always, this Hunger Games film will have ploys and political schemes playing alongside the storyline.
As for the actress Rachel, the role of Lucy Gray is going to be one of the most important roles for the rising star of Hollywood. Praised for her brilliant acting skills, the choice of the actress has been viewed highly in the eyes of all the involved parties. Rachel, herself is very proud of her role, and she has shared her excitement in a recent tweet.
