The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds And Snakes was always going to be the kind of movie with a big cast. You cannot really do a Hunger Games without a bunch of tributes, and mentors. In that same vein, it’s probably best if we don’t get attached to any of these. It is the Hunger Games, after all.
Deadline reported today that Jerome Lance is set to play Marcus, the tribute from District 2. Ashley Liao, meanwhile, will will play Clemensia Dovecote, one of Snow’s closest friends and mentor to a tribute from District 11. Also joining the cast are Knox Gibson, who will will play Bobbin, a tribute from District 8; Mackenzie Lansing, who will play Coral, a tribute from District 4 and while Aamer Husain, who will play Felix Ravinstill, the mentor to another tribute from District 11.
YEARS BEFORE HE WOULD BECOME THE TYRANNICAL PRESIDENT OF PANEM, 18-YEAR-OLD CORIOLANUS SNOW (TOM BLYTH) IS THE LAST HOPE FOR HIS FADING LINEAGE, A ONCE-PROUD FAMILY THAT HAS FALLEN FROM GRACE IN A POST-WAR CAPITOL. WITH THE 10TH ANNUAL HUNGER GAMES FAST APPROACHING, THE YOUNG SNOW IS ALARMED WHEN HE IS ASSIGNED TO MENTOR LUCY GRAY BAIRD (RACHEL ZEGLER), THE GIRL TRIBUTE FROM IMPOVERISHED DISTRICT 12. BUT, AFTER LUCY GRAY COMMANDS ALL OF PANEM’S ATTENTION BY DEFIANTLY SINGING DURING THE REAPING CEREMONY, SNOW THINKS HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO TURN THE ODDS IN THEIR FAVOR. UNITING THEIR INSTINCTS FOR SHOWMANSHIP AND NEWFOUND POLITICAL SAVVY, SNOW AND LUCY GRAY’S RACE AGAINST TIME TO SURVIVE WILL ULTIMATELY REVEAL WHO IS A SONGBIRD, AND WHO IS A SNAKE.
