Hoffman, Russell Set For “Fire,” “Skies”

While both have been linked before, this morning came two press releases confirming some recently reported on pieces of casting.

First up, Lionsgate have confirmed that Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast in the role of Plutarch Heavensbee, Head Gamemaker for The Hunger Games, in the much anticipated film adaptation of the second ‘Games’ novel “Catching Fire”.

Meanwhile Blumhouse Productions have confirmed on their Facebook page that Keri Russell will star Scott Stewart’s upcoming supernatural thriller “Dark Skies” for Dimension Films. Story details are being kept under wraps, and shooting on that kicks off this Summer.
