Julianne Moore Poised To Join ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ Going From Veep Candidate Sarah Palin To President Alma Coin?

EXCLUSIVE: As The Hunger Games moves into the final two movies culled from the Suzanne Collins novel Mockingjay, I’ve heard that Lionsgate and director Francis Lawrence are eyeing Julianne Moore to play the role of President Alma Coin.

Color Force’s Nina Jacobson is producing the series. Read More »
