Elizabeth Banks has an interview with Teen.com about working with Philip Seymour Hoffman and what changes her character goes through in ‘Catching Fire’, the sequel to this year’s smash hit ‘The Hunger Games’.
Banks says that she’s excited to work with the new additions to the cast, most notably Philip Seymour Hoffman, who will be playing Plutarch Heavensbee, the new head Gamesmaker. She says, ““I just met Phillip Seymour Hoffman [Plutarch Havensbee] for the first time, and he’s going to be amazing in the movie. He was doing a scene with Donald Sutherland [President Snow], so it’s really exciting.”
Banks also added that her outfits in this movie will be even crazier and wilder than they were in the first movie, saying, they were ‘unreal’, and that everything ‘would be taken up a notch’ this time around.
Catching Fire is currently shooting in Georgia due to tax incentives, and the film itself is set to release in November of 2013. The cast has all returned for the sequel, and will be returning for the two part Mockingjay, which will be split into two similar to the final Twilight and final Harry Potter movies.
Banks also recently compared Hunger Games and Twilight.
