Amanda Plummer has officially been cast in Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as “Wiress”, according the The Hunger Games Facebook.

Per that site, “Wiress’ eccentricity earns her the nickname “Nuts” from fellow tributes. Though she doesn’t communicate traditionally, her observations and contributions prove invaluable.

Plummer joins new cast members Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jena Malone. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Lenny Kravitz, Elizabeth Banks, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Toby Jones, and Woody Harrelson will return in their roles. The studio signed Francis Lawrence to direct Catching Fire in early May. Lionsgate is planning to shoot the movie starting in the fall for a November 22, 2013 release date.

Suzanne Collins’ “Catching Fire” story features a special edition of the Hunger Games every quarter-century in which tributes are “reaped” from the victors of past games. Slumdog Millionaire screenwriter Simon Beaufoy is crafting the “Fire” script.
