As the cameras get set to roll on Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, THR writes that Maria Howell (The Color Purple, The Blind Side, “The Vampire Diaries”) has been cast as Seeder, a former victor from District 11.
Atlanta-based Howell’s character will compete in the 75th annual Hunger Games, also known as the Quarter Quell.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second installment in the Lionsgate movie franchise in theaters November 22, 2013, will be directed by Francis Lawrence.
As the sequel to the 2008 bestseller “The Hunger Games,” it continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and the fictional, futuristic nation of Panem. Due to the events of the previous novel, a rebellion against the ruling Capitol has begun, and Katniss and fellow tribute Peeta are forced to return to the arena in a special edition of the The Hunger Games.
