Hunger Games: Song of Birds and Snakes

Murray Close/Lionsgate Rachel Zeigler and Tom Blythe star as Lucy Graybeard and young Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.

“It’s a love story,” said director Francis Lawrence, who directed the latter three The Hunger Games Movies, starting with 2013 There is a firetells V.F. “It’s this kind of love story set in a different kind of world in a different time. A very dark love story.”

Based on the book of the same name, Song The song of birds and snakes Takes place years before the time of Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen. It’s the 10th annual Hunger Games in Panem, and an 18-year-old Coriolanus is assigned to mentor Lucy, District 12’s female tribute, who wins the hearts of the nation of Panem when she sings defiantly during the slaughtering ceremony.

“It’s not in judgment, but Lucy Gray is the antithesis of Katniss,” Lawrence says. “She’s a musician, she’s an artist, she’s a charmer… Snow has never met a girl like her before.”

Oscar winner Viola Davis was recently cast in the role of gamemaker Volumnia Gaul. She joins a group that includes Peter Dinklage as the unwitting creator of the Hunger Games, Casca Highbottom; Zegler’s West Side Story costars Josh Andres Rivera as Snow’s friend Sejanus Plinth; euphoria breakout Hunter Shaffer as Tigris; Jason Schwartzman as Caesar Flickerman’s predecessor Lucretius “Lucky” Flickerman; Jerome Lance as District 2 Tribute Marcus; Ashley Liao as counselor Clemencia Dovecott; Knox Gibson as District 8 Tribute Bobbin; Mackenzie Lansing as the District 4 Tribute Chorale; Amer Hussain as another consultant; and Felix Ravinstill as District 11 tribute.
